Welcome to the latest edition of the online resource for all Adult Care staff working to support the people of Lincolnshire. In this section, you will find the policy, procedure and guidance chapters for Adult Care in Lincolnshire. We call it the Adults Policies, Procedures and Practice (APPP).

The layout of this APPP changed significantly at the last update. Mostly the information remains the same, but previous chapters were divided up to make them shorter, easier to find and also read. This site also changed to a new look website, and further information is available about how to navigate the new site in Finding your way around this Site.

Click on Amendments to see a summary of the changes in this version.

If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please use the Search facility.

Please read Using this APPP to become familiar with the features of the site and how to navigate it.

Please be aware that some linked information is for Adult Care staff use only, and can only be accessed through Lincolnshire County Council’s intranet site. Some sections of this site will redirect you to guidance currently stored in temporary locations. This is to ensure we can respond quickly to changes brought about by ongoing improvements to Adult Care systems.
