New Research; Lessons learned from Serious Case Reviews (2016 – 2017) 

Neglect In the New Age

Pathways to harm, pathways to protection: a triennial analysis of serious case reviews 2011 to 2014; tells us that ‘neglect’ was found to be in the lives of nearly two thirds of serious case reviews (Brandon et al 2016). For most local authorities ‘neglect’ features as a common factor in child protection referrals and at child protection conferences.

The LSCB is launching the Neglect Road Show over the next few months to coincide with the Graded Care Profile training. All practitioners from the statutory and voluntary sector, working with children and families, are welcome.

The Aims and Learning Outcomes are for practitioners at the end of the workshop to:-

  • Understand what is ‘Child Neglect’
  • Know what the signs of neglect are and how to identify them
  • Know what neglect assessment tools are available for Cambridgeshire practitioners
  • How to make informed child protection referrals to the MASH

Cambridgeshire LSCB Toolbox

In Cambridgeshire we have the new ‘front door’ for all  notifications regarding safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children.  Together with Peterborough, we also have in place a better way of working with children and young people at risk from Child Sexual Exploitation. Alongside this work has been done to develop tools and Guidance that will support professionals in working together to assess and meet the needs of children and young people.

The aim of these workshops is to support participants in doing their work by building awareness of what is needed from them and what is available to them to help them do it.   

This is a workshop for all agency practitioners and managers, who work with children and families, on :

New Cambridgeshire Threshold Document, New Child Sexual Exploitation Operational Protocol,  Risk Assessment and The Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub The Early Help Hub

Please be aware that this workshop is based on the previous Integrated Front Door Workshops and will contain the same case studies and initial overview of the MASH process. The new parts include the CSE Risk assessment tool and the launch of the CSE protocol with an exercise using the original case studies around the referral and risk assessment process.  If you attended Right Time, Right Child, Right Service there will be some repetition of material.
