Thursday 14 July 2022
10:00 to 14:00

‘Croydon’s Safeguarding Children’s Partnerships to design a programme of learning to ensure practitioners are skilled in undertaking assessments and carrying out work with children and families from black and ethnic minority communities. This is specifically in relation to practitioners competently assessing the impact of the additional risk’s black children (particularly black boys) face in the context of contextual safeguarding (extra familial harm)’    -   Child A, Safeguarding Practice Review, 2020`                                                                                    

This series of 4 four-hour workshops will allow practitioners to build on their existing skills and knowledge regarding risk assessing and working with specifically black male children and complete safety plans.

Research has identified that Black young people, particularly Black male children, are experiencing additional risks, which can lead to complexities in the assessment process and continuing work.

Practitioners and others need to be proficient in considering and weighing up issues such as individual, familial, community/contextual risks on the impact on the behaviours of the child/young person.
