Welcome to the Bradford Children's Services Online Procedures

Welcome to Bradford Children's Services Policies and Practice Guidance. In it you will find all the information necessary to support you in your day to day social work. It consists of different sections which you can access from the menu bar.

  • Main Policies - this contains our key policies and ensures that we comply with the law and statutory guidance when safeguarding the needs of the children and families we work with. This guides our social work practice;
  • Practice Guidance - this contains local guidance, tools and other information that supports and complements our main policies;
  • Practice Standards - these give clear guidance to all Social Work Practitioners, Community Resource Workers and Managers in respect of their roles and responsibilities as professionals, and help to ensure we meet our statutory requirements and keep children safe.
  • Foster Carer's Handbook - the Bradford MDC Foster Carer's Handbook contains useful information about our service by detailing our policies, procedures and practice standards. It is being developed to ensure that we deliver the best outcomes for children, families and carers. Foster carers play an important role in the lives of children in care and their families, so it is important that we have the right systems in place to support this important work;
  • West Yorkshire Consortium Safeguarding and Child Protection Procedures - in this section you can access the multi-agency Safeguarding Children Partnership (SCP) procedures that we have signed up to with other local authority partners across West Yorkshire. This ensures that we can work in a consistent way across the region in many key areas of our work.
