Our Safeguarding Children Partnership for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has arranged a Learning Lessons workshop on 15 October at St Erme Community Centre, Trispen, Truro.
The session is held from 9.30-12.30 and repeated from 1.30-4.30. Tea and coffee are available from 9am and 1pm.
Multi-Agency High Risk Behaviour Policy
Where individuals are pursuing high risk behaviours or not looking after themselves, there may be serious implications – for an individual’s health and wellbeing; for their family, including their children; for the local community and for wider services.
A multi-agency policy and procedure has been written to provide guidance and a framework for professionals around safeguarding adults who are displaying high risk behaviours and are at high risk of self-neglect and it will be introduced at this event by Ann Smith, Head of Service, Practice, Quality and Adult Safeguarding.
The workshop will also provide the opportunity to put into practice the learning gained from the policy discussion, by consideration of individual case examples considering the impact of high risk behaviours, specifically in relation to children who may be involved.
The Learning Lessons Workshop on 15 October is your opportunity to contribute your knowledge and experience in a multi-agency environment and to further develop your multi-professional practice in this area. Framework for the day:
- Overview of the Policy
- Networking break
- Experiential workshop using case discussions and participation
- Plenary discussion
To book, please contact Katy Ducker, Administration Assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org stating which session you prefer.
Information presented at the workshops will be available to download from the SCP website – www.safechildren-cios.co.uk after the events.
Should you be personally affected by the issues addressed in these workshops, please make sure you use the support resources available in your organisation.
