Workforce Development

Hampshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP) and Isle of Wight Safeguarding Children Partnership (IOWSCP) offer multi-agency professionals access to a range of learning and development many of which are relevant to neglect in both Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

To support the implementation of the revised Neglect Strategy and Toolkit, both LSCP’s have developed a training course for professionals across the multi-agency partnerships. During 2020-21 this will be delivered via virtual webinars and delivered regularly across the year. The course is specifically aligned with the Strategy and Toolkit and will support professionals to effectively understand, identify and respond to neglect.
