Responding to Neglect in Hants and IOW Launch

In collaboration with the Isle of Wight Safeguarding Children Partnership, the Hampshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP) recently launched its revised Neglect Strategy 2020-23 and associated online Neglect Toolkit for professionals working with children and families in the Hampshire and IOW areas.

Last month, over 300 professionals attended two launch events, ‘Responding to Neglect in Hampshire and Isle of Wight’, which were facilitated by independent chair, Derek Benson. The events introduced the revised strategy, toolkit and associated training. Multi-agency professionals provided ‘windows into practice’ in the form of case examples which helped offer delegates insight into the toolkit’s application. Feedback to the events were overwhelmingly positive.

If you missed the launch events, the HSCP host a number of free webinars for professionals on neglect which incorporate the newly revised strategy and toolkit. Browse what is on offer now to learn more on how to identify and support children and families where neglect might be an issue.
