The manual is accessed by practitioners from varying agencies, who may find terms that they are not familiar with. Therefore, a large glossary (Keywords) of terms is available such as Adult at Risk (try it: click on the highlighted text). We call them 'Keywords'. Once clicked, the definitions will appear in a new window or tab, depending on your browser. You can leave it open for reference, or close it using the "close" button at the bottom

We have provided a Search function, available from the relevant button on the left hand menu bar. This will enable you to search chapters.

You may have to try different or alternative spellings/terms before you get the result you are looking for.


4. Amendments

Where a chapter has been significantly amended or is new, it is indicated in the Contents List.

If a chapter has only minor amendments which do not affect procedure, for example a change of name or a link to another chapter, it will not be marked as updated.
