Welcome to the West of Scotland Inter-Agency Child Protection Procedures

January 2017

The West of Scotland Child Protection Consortium has approved these inter-agency child protection procedures which have been updated to reflect changes in the refreshed National Guidance for child protection in Scotland, 2014 and made accessible through this new website.

The website, developed by tri.x, is designed to provide those involved in child protection with easy access to relevant information that will help keep children safe. It has mobile functionality and can be used on a variety of devices. See Using this Manual, Mobile/Tablet Compatibility.

If you have any questions about access to or the content of the procedures please contact your local Child Protection Committee lead officer or email child.protectioncommittee@south-ayrshire.gov.uk.
