Our Policies, Procedures and Practice portals are online versions of the traditional paper-based policies and procedures manual, with additional resources. We provide portal sites for different customers, so scroll down for more information or click on the buttons below to jump to a dedicated page:

Portal Models Available

As we know that each organisation has different needs and priorities, we offer different APPP portal models which all use our specialised and attractive website layout.

Customised Portal – if you do not have current policies and procedures, our template policies, procedures and practice portals provide comprehensive and up to date chapter content. We combine your local content with our chapters, to create a site which is bespoke to you.

Format and Review Portal – if you have existing policies and procedures, we format them into our site, review and provide feedback on these. Chapters from our template portals can be added if required.

Essentials Portal – this option uses our template suite of chapters in a branded website, but with no opportunity for localisation of main chapters. There is a local documents area where customers can upload their own information. PPP keep the main chapters content updated from a national perspective.

Consortium Portals – created specifically for multi-agency Safeguarding Adult Boards or Safeguarding Children Partnerships to share content between consortium members.
