We have different models available for Safeguarding Adult Boards. Each model is hosted within our specific APPP sites, all of which have a full range of hyperlinked resources (see below). All websites will be branded with the Board / Partnership logo and corporate colours whichever model is chosen. Below is a summary of the different models.
The portal is supplied with our full suite of template chapters, including key issues in the Care Act 2014, key safeguarding adults concerns and additional guidance and legislation. We will add local links throughout the site to achieve initial localisation. The customer is supplied with all the chapters in Word to review, which will then reflect their local area and ways of working. These amendments are then formatted into the site. The draft portal and Word chapters are available for the customer to review within one week of contract agreement. Customised portals offer a lot of opportunities to localise content, including:
Where the Board / Partnership has their own policies and procedures, we format these into a branded website (as above). As part of this process, we will conduct a review of the information sent to us and provide feedback if there is any missing or out of date information. Our template chapters can be added separately to plug any gaps, if required. Sites can be available within one month of receiving the customer’s documentation.
As well as having the customer’s own policies and procedures, Format and Review portals offer other opportunities to localise sites, including:
These have been created specifically for multi-agency Safeguarding Adult Boards / Partnerships who will share content between consortium members. They can use PPP content as the starting point (see Customised Portal above) or start with existing local policies and procedures (see Format and Review Portal above). Core content within the portal will be the same across each consortium member, but each member will have their own homepage which can be customised to specific local requirements and there is space within each shared policy and procedure to add specific local information and to link to local documents.
Please note: For each of the above models, PPP will send out suggested amendments every six months for local review and sign off. Urgent amendments, such as needed as a result of changes to legislation or statutory guidance, will be carried out as required. Customers can also send their information for upload at any time.
This option uses our template suite of safeguarding adults chapters in a branded website, but with no localisation of the main chapters. There is a local documents area where customers can upload their own additional information. PPP keeps the main chapter content updated from a national perspective. Amendments will be tabled in our usual way, to allow staff to be notified of changes. Sites are available within one week of contract agreement.
