Neglect and the Graded Care Profile

The neglect of children and young people is one of the most difficult areas within the child care and protection field to identify, assess and intervene in. Neglect is the most common reason for a child to be the subject of a Child protection Plan in the UK.

The understanding and assessing neglect course allows practitioners to consider the causes and effects of neglect and how we can measure its impact and intervene as early as possible. It provides practitioners with an opportunity to use the Graded Care Profile via a case study exercise.

Participants attending should have a general awareness of Safeguarding and have previously attended single agency in house training.

Learning Objectives: By the end of the day participants will have the knowledge of:

• Legal definitions of neglect

• Signs and Symptoms of neglect

• The impact of neglect at different ages

• The Police response to neglect

• Barriers to reporting

• The implications of a “Fresh Start” approach

• How to assess neglect using the Graded Care Profile

• How to develop a plan of intervention using the Graded care profile

• Thresholds of neglect and the referral pathway across the continuum of need

This is a multi-agency event. We respectfully ask that you do not book more than 3 people from your team on to one event.
