CASE STUDY: EFFECTIVELY IDENTIFYING AND TACKLING NEGLECT

09.00-10.15


The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Children’s Safeguarding Boards launched their shared neglect strategy in 2016, following a significant period of multi-agency work and development. This toolkit has received positive feedback from partner agencies and external organisations, including Ofsted, as it provides a clear means of identification as well as levels of expected response. Attend this session to:

  • Gain an overview of the strategy: a framework for identifying and tackling neglect, which includes:
    o A thresholds chart and guide to recognising types of neglect.
    o A useful online practitioners’ toolkit, developed to accompany the strategy.
  • Practice using the toolkit through a number of case studies.
  • Hear about the interventions that are supporting sustained change in neglect cases.
