Neglect Toolkit: A Bitesize Webinar

Course Title:
Neglect Toolkit: A Bitesize Webinar
Course Code:
Neglect Toolkit O

It is agreed amongst practitioners and academics that the cumulative nature of neglect can have a disastrous impact on all aspects of children’s health and development. Neglect causes great stress to children leading to poor health, educational and social outcomes and is potentially fatal. Kingston & Richmond LSCB believes that all children and young people in our boroughs should have professionals who are able to swiftly identify and respond effectively to child neglect.

The Neglect Toolkit has been developed to is to help practitioners with parents and carers look at and think about the quality of care given to children, and whether the care meets the children’s needs. It will help them to think about concerns as well as identify strengths and where care giving is good.
