Policies, Procedures and Guidance

One of Suffolk LSCB’s key roles is to provide policies and guidance to anyone working with children. This section contains the policies we think you need. If you can’t find what you are looking for, contact us and we will do our best to help.

Collaborative Casework: Adults, Children and Families and Mental Health Services (Previously ACCORD)

Collaborative Casework describes the way we expect everyone across our services to work collaboratively to get the best outcomes for the adults and children we work with. We must all change the way we think about what we do and the way we do it, so the County Council, Health and other partners have been looking at how we work together. All parties recognise that the current system in Suffolk is disjointed, not preventative enough and sometimes doesn’t work best for the customer.

The guidance below applies to all casework and collaborative working across service boundaries at every level, to support a child, young person, adult and their whole family.

Good Practice Guide – Suffolk County Council

The Suffolk County Council Good Practice Guide is for anyone in Suffolk who works with children, young people and their families. It contains the policies and procedures which promote high quality services and good outcomes for children and young people. Suffolk County Council staff can access this information through mySCC (the SCC Intranet).
