  • Assisting practitioners to identify the risks to children from Domestic Violence 
  • Supporting decisions as to whether a case presents as a need of a ‘safeguarding response’ or family support 

This two hour workshop is primarily for those professionals (statutory and voluntary) who either work predominately or who have regular contact with children and young people and for those who hold particular responsibilities for safeguarding and for those who hold positions as professional advisors.
