LSCB - Neglect - Seminar

Course Code
Course Types
Training Event
Safeguarding Children Partnerships across Sussex have long recognised that Neglect remains a priority issue for our locality and the children and young people within it. It is also known that neglect often forms part of sexual or physical abuse and will have an emotional effect on those involved.

All children deserve the chance to grow up in a loving, secure family where they can achieve their full potential. Sadly, we recognise that not all children have the same experiences and not all children in our local authority areas are brought up in families able to care for them effectively. The impact of neglect on children and young people is enormous.

Neglect causes great distress to children, leading to poor health, educational and social outcomes and can be potentially fatal. Child neglect is the most common and pervasive type of abuse in the UK today and requires a coordinated and rigorous professional response at all levels.

The day will look at how aspects of neglect have been involved in recent Learning Reviews and Serious Case Reviews across our localities.

Each area’s implementation of interventions and local strategies to reduce the potential risks for our children and young people will also be explored.
