Upcoming HSCP Training on Understanding, Identifying and Responding to Neglect

Date: Friday, 05th May 2023 | Category: Events, Training

 Understanding, Identifying and Responding to Neglect

The Neglect Toolkit was commissioned to support the practical application of the joint HSCP and IOWSCP Neglect Strategy, which was first published in October 2016. The updated 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. To support this core area of multi-agency safeguarding work, this course will guide Hampshire and Isle of Wight professionals through the strategy and toolkit to enable them to transfer this knowledge into practice.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the concept of significant harm and neglect as identified in the IOWSCP and the HSCP Neglect Strategy.
  • Identify indicators of neglect including the four types of neglect outlined by Howe (2005) and consider the significance of individual perspectives when identifying neglect and the implications for practice.
  • Explore the IOWSCP and HSCP practitioner tools available via the online Neglect Toolkit and consider how they can be used to support single and multi-agency working.

What previous delegates have said about this course:
