Code: BH/19/0210 Families, Children & Learning Staff Engagement Sessions (late pm)

These short sessions, lasting approximately 1.5 hours each, will be run by various members of the Families, Children & Learning Directorate Management Team (FCL DMT). 

They will provide an opportunity for everyone to come together in small informal groups, to think about the work we currently do and consider how we can move forward as one directorate to deliver not just good, but great services for all our customers. 

Each session will open with a showing of the short Annual Report video and, with local elections fast approaching, we will take the opportunity to discuss what we think is important for newly elected Councillors to know about our services, our service users and our working partnerships. The sessions will conclude with an opportunity for Questions & Answers.

Code: BH/18/1324 LSCB - Preventing the Exploitation of Children and Young People (Day1)

Ensuring that children and young people in Brighton & Hove are protected effectively from sexual harm and violent exploitation is a priority for Brighton & Hove LSCB.

Day One of our two training courses on exploitation looks at different ways that children & young people may be exploited by those who have power over them by virtue of their age, gender, intellect, physical strength and/or economic or other resources. Violence, coercion and intimidation commonly occur in exploitation, and these situations are often characterised by the child or young person’s limited availability of choice resulting from their social/economic and/or emotional vulnerability

This course is facilitated by The Wise Project, and there will be a strong focus on Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), how to identify this abuse, and disrupt the exploitation. You will also look at the emerging threat of Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE) and County Lines activity, as well as considering what may make a young person vulnerable to exploitation into radicalisation. These  different forms of exploitation can be linked, and you will be encouraged to think about the wider experiences of the child, including the nuances behind a vulnerable children being both potential  perpetrators of crimes and victims of exploitation.

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