Group A: Safeguarding Children – A Shared Responsibility
The Tomlinson Centre
Queensbridge Road, London E8 3ND
10th March 2020
09:15 – 16:30
Aim of the course
- To develop awareness of, and the ability to act on, concerns about the safety and welfare of children and young people in line with What to do if you’re worried a child is being abused and the London Children Protection Procedures.
By the end of the training participants will have:
- Identified what to do if they have concerns about a child, including those who are suffering, or at risk of suffering, significant harm
- Developed an understanding of what will happen once they have informed someone about those concerns
- An understanding of the response to allegations against staff or volunteers, who work with children
- Heard about the further contribution they may be asked or expected to make to the processes described in What To Do If You’re Worried a Child Is Being Abused and the London Child Protection Procedures, including how to share information
- Accessed some basic information and background about the legislative framework within which children’s welfare is safeguarded and promoted
- Been made aware of the City of London Threshold document and Hackney Child Well-being model which sets out the thresholds for accessing services at different level of need and concern and the Common Support Framework which enables participants to identify how to access support for families.
It was the most practical course I have attended on safeguarding so far!
