LSCB - '' Hidden'' Children and Young People Working with Invisible Families

Course Code
Course Types
Training Event

This offer is an important addition to our programme, there are numbers of children, who remain “hidden” from mainstream service. This could be because they are placed with a non-family member for more than 28 days, are transient due to lifestyle choices made by their parents/carers, are educated other than at school or have entered the UK with parents/carers and have no access to services. All of these factors may cause a heightened risk and lack of safeguarding provision. This session will consider those who may be:

  • Privately Fostered

  • Home Educated

  • Traveller Families

  • Migrant Families

  • Modern Slavery

This training is provided by the Local Children's Safeguarding Board (LSCB)

Learning outcomes

 By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • gain an understanding what constitutes a private fostering arrangement

  • enable an awareness of the legal duty the local authority has towards a private fostering arrangement

  • understanding of the local arrangements for liaison with travelling families

  • understand how the local authority supports “home educated” families/children

  • equip professionals with background knowledge to support working with a child or family from a refugee or migrant background

  • understand how safeguarding procedures are applied in these circumstances
