1. Introduction to the Scheme of Delegation

The Scheme of Delegation provides guidance about which level of management or posts have authority for decision making within the Localities and Safeguarding section of Children and Family Services. This including financial and resource decisions which are made to support to children and families. The posts listed indicate the lowest level at which decisions can be made but do not preclude decision making at a higher level if decisions are based on complex or exceptional situations.

This Scheme of Delegation should be used in conjunction with children's services procedures and Hull Safeguarding Children Board Guidelines and Procedures, and with reference to legislation relating to children and families.

Staff should refer to Hull City Council's wider procedures for information on delegations in relation to Human Resources and Business Support decisions, Council Standing Orders, Financial Regulations and processes for Cabinet and Elected member decision making.

"If in doubt, consult"

"If you don't know ask"
