Local Authority Children’s Services

Ensuring Best Practice in a Complex Legislative Framework

At tri.x, we understand the importance of robust procedures in supporting good practice within the increasingly complex legislative environment of children’s services. Our procedures are designed to provide clarity and authority where statutory obligations are clear, while also encouraging creativity and best practice among practitioners.

Comprehensive and Adaptable Procedures

tri.x offers a comprehensive suite of chapters that serve as the foundational building blocks for our customers’ online procedures. These chapters can be customised to meet local needs, with additional content either formatted by tri.x or retained as standalone documents. This flexibility allows for the creation of online procedures that emphasise ownership and corporate responsibility. Our goal is to leverage our experience and expertise to produce a resource that supports practice, managerial oversight, and compliance with statutory requirements.

Customer-Controlled Resource Library

A unique feature of our online procedures is the customer-controlled Resource Library. Linked to the procedures site, this library provides customers with the flexibility to upload local guidance, forms, and direct work materials. This feature ensures that the most relevant and up-to-date resources are always available. Unlike the bi-annual updates of our online procedures, the Resource Library allows customers to upload and replace materials at any time through a secure website.

Commitment to Excellence and Compliance

We collaborate closely with our customers to maintain the high standards of our online procedures. All Children Services procedures are regularly reviewed and updated. Our team of consultants and extensive network of customers ensure that we stay abreast of changes in legislation and best practice guidance.

Staff Training and Support

tri.x is committed to helping your staff become familiar with your online procedures. We offer launch events, briefings, and online support as needed. Additionally, all tri.x online procedures can be analysed through Google Analytics, providing valuable baseline information about manual usage.

The new format is much easier to navigate and engage with, and it has really motivated me to ensure it is as accurate as possible. I really enjoy using it, and I know that my SCP Business Manager feels the same way.

Madeline Jones, Learning & Development Officer St. Helens Borough Council

The Adult Care Providers Handbook is an incredibly valuable resource that can be accessed by managers or care workers to provide instant or deep information on any subject in health and social care. It has been incredible to be working with tri.x and with people who are as passionate as us. To meet a team and organisation who are likeminded, at the same level as us in terms of quality, and who also want projects to thrive has been so inspiring.

Colin Hanley, Training Co-Ordinator Age UK Hereford & Worcestershire

We had excellent feedback from Ofsted, who said our documents and policy section was outstanding and thank you to the tri.x team for all your work on this.

Derby City Supported Accommodation

tri.x’s approach as a company is to be responsive to the customers who use the manuals and ensure it ultimately meets their needs. Foster carers have found the manual to be hugely beneficial and find it to be a useful resource tool to support vulnerable children in their care.

Derby City, Local Authority Children’s Services

It has been an absolute pleasure working in partnership with tri.x to develop our Gateshead Safeguarding Adults Board Multi-Agency Policy and Procedures. The tri.x team demonstrated a wealth of knowledge and experience in Adult Safeguarding and was able to provide us with an impressive foundation that was statutorily compliant and highlighted national guidance and best practices. We were then able to shape our policy and procedures to ensure they truly represented our local values, structures, and operational practices.

Carole Paz-Uceira, Safeguarding Adults Business Manager Gateshead Council

tri.x has been extremely supportive and flexible in terms of meeting our needs and providing a service that is fit for purpose. Our main point of contact has been extremely friendly and helpful, going above and beyond to achieve a solution for our business. We are extremely happy with what has been achieved. All those who have used tri.x within the organisation have found it to be beneficial and extremely easy to use and access.”
