Multi-Agency - Graded Care Profile 2 Training - Free Event

Thurrock LSCB are pleased to offer the above free training.  The Graded Care Profile 2 helps Practitioners measure the quality of care being given to a child.  It is an assessment tool that helps them to spot anything that is putting that child at risk of harm.

It is important we find children who are at risk of harm as early as possible so we can get them the right help.

Graded Care Profile 2 shows:-

  • strengths
  • weaknesses
  • what needs to be changed

By working out what parents can do better, it is easier for the person working with a family to get them the right support to improve the life of their child.

Practitioners are specially trained to use the tool.  They visit families at home to do an assessment, which is a bit like filling in a questionnaire.  It is called Graded Care Profile because different aspects of family life are 'graded' on a scale of 1 to 5.  Questions are broken down into four areas:-

  • physical, such as quality of food, clothes and health
  • safety, such as how safe the home is and if the child knows about things like road safety
  • love, such as the relationship between the carer and child
  • esteem, such as if a child is encouraged to learn and if they are praised for doing something good.

Graded Care Profile 2 is designed to be used with families where someone is concerned about the care of a child.

Thurrock LSCB are offering this training to anyone working with children and young people that need to assess neglect.
