Core training for residential workers. This course covers the training requirements in Working Together including identification of abuse and neglect, early help, factors at home, referrals and communication between agencies and effective intervention especially where workers encounter resistance and reluctance. This course approaches the subject from the perspective of residential homes and schools. We recommend staff also access multiagency training through their local safeguarding children board.
Martine Osmond, has over 20 years’ social work experience from work in prison as a Drugs/HIV worker on through to The Children’s Society managing services across Child Sexual Exploitation, Runaway’s & Substance Misuse. In 2013 she gave evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee on localised child grooming. In the same year she was shortlisted for an award by the National Working Group for sexually exploited children (NWG) for her contribution to work with victims. She continues to work locally as a manager in the Young Carers service, meaning her understanding of young people, parents and their needs, staff experience, and the requirement to apply recent and evidenced based research to practice is live and up to date.
