Welcome to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Local Safeguarding Children Partnership’s (LSCPs) Neglect Toolkit.
The Neglect Toolkit was commissioned by both LSCPs to support the practical application of the joint HSCP and IOWSCP Neglect Strategy, which was first published in October 2016.
The HSCP and IOWSCP Neglect Strategy has since been revised and updated and the 2020-23 publication sets out the refreshed vision and key priorities of both LSCPs and provides the framework under which ongoing multi-agency work will be undertaken. The overarching aim of the strategy is to prevent and reduce the impact of neglect and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
The information in this toolkit reflects the updated Neglect Strategy which has been developed to support frontline professionals and managers who work with children and families to identify and respond to issues of neglect. The material is free to access and available to all practitioners from any agency/organisation working with unborn babies, children and their families and adults with care and support needs across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
