The procedures and policies are divided into 10 sections which can all be accessed from the CONTENTS List which is available on tabs on the left-hand side of each page and across the top of the page. Alternatively, you can search for key words to find the most applicable procedure or policy in the top right of each page.

The manual will be regularly reviewed, at least once per year. Each procedure has an owner allocated to it and the Partnership Team hold a master list of these procedure owners. Procedures and policies will be amended as and when a change is identified.  Changes can be suggested by any user of the manual, but changes can only be made by the owner working in collaboration with the Partnership Team and Phew. If you are asked to make an amendment or need to request an amendment to an existing procedure or policy in the manual, then please contact partnership.team@surreycc.gov.uk  If you have any queries or suggestions, please contact the Partnership Development Manager:
