SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN USING THE PRINCIPLES OF INVESTIGATION :
Good practice recommendations for front line practitioners when gathering evidence
Monday 16 September 2013
CVS, Priory Street, York, YO1 6ET
Facilitated By Nigel King, Independent Consultant and Trainer
A number of reports from inquiries have stated that all frontline practitioners and other professionals who conduct enquiries or undertake investigations under Section 47 of the Children Act 1989 should be trained to do so.
This conference takes extracts from the Practice Advice on Core Investigative Doctrine (2005) and will provide social workers, health practitioners and other professionals with an awareness of investigative methods. It will identify good practice when gathering evidence in order to safeguard children and compile a case for Care Proceedings.
All sessions will be interactive and use case studies; there will be opportunity for questions throughout.
The day will be relevant to all front line practitioners at all levels, including their supervisors and managers, in all key agencies particularly Children's Social Care, who are required to conduct enquiries into reported cases of suspected child abuse.
