Course Outline:

The impact of neglect can be far reaching for the child or young person, from developmental delay to child sexual exploitation, serious medical issues or mental health concerns.  With an estimated 1 in 10 children experiencing neglect, 29,000 children in 2019/2020 being registered on a Child Protection Plan with Neglect as the primary reason and 23,000 cases of child cruelty being recorded by the Police, the NSPCC highlights neglect as a significant risk to the wellbeing and safety of Children in the UK.  Neglect was also a feature in 35% of fatal Serious Case Reviews (NSPCC 2021).  It is therefore vital that staff are able to identify, intervene and safeguard children and young people where neglect may be an issue.

Utilising DfE (2014), NSPCC (2015), Children's Society (2016) and Nice Guidance (2017), this two day-Programme aims to support staff to develop the knowledge and skills needed to not only recognise neglect but to effectively assess and support children who may be living in situations of neglect, as well as to know when and how to escalate concerns.  This will briefly include an explanation of the Graded Care Profile 2 Tool; however, this training does not duplicate the GCP2 training or equip participants to use the tool.  This course covers how to evidence cumulative harm where it is necessary to demonstrate the impact neglect is having on a child over time.

Learning Outcomes

Participants completing this course will be able to:

Please note that you will need to be available to attend both sessions of the training.  Failure to attend both days will result in a £50 non-attendance charge.
