Welcome to our Adult Polices, Procedures and Practice (APPP) site for providers of adult care and support.

This APPP provides all the key policies, procedures and practice guidance needed by a provider service. It is based on the Care Quality Commission’s Fundamental Standards and Key Lines of Enquiry and uses the Care and Support Act Statutory Guidance (Department of Health and Social Care), as well as other national guidance, legislation and regulations.

This site is easy to use. There are tabs on the left side of the screen, which have drop down lists of headings. Click on the arrows next to each heading to see all the sections available.
