Supervised Contact with Families training

Family time is important for all of us. For some young people, especially those in care, time with families brings complications and in some cases this time needs to be supervised.

This course explores how to create the right environment for safe, positive time with families. It equips supervisors with tools to understand the risks, plan ahead, respond effectively in a child-centred way and make an effective record.

An important course for anyone spending time with children, young people and their families, this has been highlighted as an Ofsted requirement for children’s homes facilitating ‘supervised contact’.
