Code: BH/18/1727 BHSCP - '' Hidden'' Children and Young People Working with Invisible Families

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

This training is provided by the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP)
