Wednesday 26 January 2022 6.30pm - 8.30pm
This session is for all staff or volunteers who have contact with children and/or families no matter how minimal, anyone who has not received child protection training previously or is in need of refreshed input, and anyone new to working with children and families in Scotland.
This virtual event will provide an overview of practice guidance and child protection with reference to the recently published National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland 2021.
Child Protections is the safeguarding of children and the responsibility of all. Attendees will gain an understanding of what is meant by ‘it’s everyone’s responsibility to protect children’ and be more familiar with the signs, indicators and types of child abuse and neglect.
In addition, attendees will have increased confidence about what to do if a child discloses abuse and know their roles and responsibilities in contributing to the protection of children.
