Welcome to the Kent Children's Services Procedures Manual

Welcome to new Kent Procedures Online (now to be known as ‘KPON’). This updated platform provides practitioners from across Integrated Children’s Services (ICS) access to relevant policies, procedures and guidance documents. We would like to welcome staff new to this platform from Open Access, PIAS, and Youth Justice and we will continue to work with your leadership teams to grow and update the range of materials and documents that are available to you. If you have any questions or suggestions about the new platform please contact and we will be happy to help.

Staff working in our statutory services (who will already be familiar with this platform) will be able to continue to access a new and improved version of the procedure manual (please see 'Using this Manual' for details) and we hope that you will find the new incorporate design features and functionality of ‘KPON’ useful.

If you have used the new and improved search function on KPON and are still unsure where to find a document that you require please see this useful flowchart to help guide you in the right direction (see Flowchart of Resources).
