Training to help teams recognise and respond to neglect

Neglect can have serious and long-lasting impacts on a child's life. So it’s essential that practitioners are able to recognise the signs and understand the steps they need to take to help protect children.
This training course will give your team the knowledge and skills they need to improve ways of working with children and families around neglect.

Designed for teams of up to 25 people, the training is delivered by NSPCC practitioners who are experienced at working with children, young people and their families.

On completion of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • recognise the signs and symptoms of a child suffering from neglect
  • understand how all community stakeholders require an awareness of neglect

  • know how to refer concerns to relevant child protection agencies and local family support provision.
