Code: BH/18/057 Introduction to Making Every Contact Count (MECC) (EVENT FULL)

Making Every Contact Count (MECC) is a national Public Health initiative encouraging and helping people to make healthier choices to achieve positive long-term behaviour change by providing ‘very brief interventions’.

Very Brief Interventions are pro-actively introducing the idea of lifestyle change and motivating individuals to start making changes to their lifestyle behaviour(s). They are usually given opportunistically and are a short intervention (usually from 30 seconds to 3 minutes).

In this participatory session on MECC, we shall introduce the concept behind it and offer the tools and resources to deliver it, including resources and the key messages behind the new Public Health campaign ‘One You’.

Code: BH/17/192 LSCB - Safeguarding Children with Disabilities (EVENT FULL)

We know that disabled children are at an increased risk of being abused compared with their non-disabled peers. They are also less likely to receive the protection and support they need when they have been abused.

Their additional needs must be met to allow them to be properly safeguarded.

This course will increase your knowledge and awareness of those needs. There is a focus on how safeguarding practice can be put into place, thus reducing the potential risks.

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

Code: BH/18/110 WRAP ( Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent) and Far Right Aware - Children's Services

Prevent is one of the four strands of CONTEST, the Government’s Counter Terrorism Strategy.  The ‘Prevent’ Strategy is to reduce the threat to the UK from terrorism and aims ‘to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism’.  Prevent addresses all forms of terrorism.

The WRAP - ‘Workshop To Raise Awareness Of Prevent’ - training provides an introduction to ‘Prevent’ aimed at objective two of the Prevent strategy - supporting vulnerable people.  It has been developed by the Home Office to raise awareness of and explain Prevent within the wider safeguarding context.  The workshop will develop your knowledge of support available and skills to recognise when someone may be becoming involved in or supporting terrorism, to help them make a decision not to carry on that path, before any crime is committed.

The Far Right Aware section in the workshop is designed to augment existing WRAP training on extremism issues, focusing on how they relate to the extreme right.  It will enable professionals in their role to challenge extremist and terrorist ideology.
