Safeguarding Policy and Procedures - Have you contacted SCA for your copy yet?

SCA has commissioned Christine Maclean to produce template policies and procedures to reflect recent changes. Chris has produced a fantastic package of templates which providers can customize to update their organization's policies and procedures.

Some providers have already seen a copy and have commented that this will save them hours of time in starting from scratch. The policy and procedures pack is available to subscribers at a cost of £60 and to non-subscribers at a cost of £100 (SCA has to make a charge for these templates to cover the cost of commissioning this piece of work).

To view examples of this useful pack please click here, to purchase your copy contact the SCA office on 01372 825 116 or email sca@surreycare.org.uk.
