Parental advocacy in the child protection process

This intermediate level course will considers the duties and responsibilities of children's social care agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare and how to effectively advocate for parents in such circumstances. The course assumes that you have attended the introduction to child care law course or already have a good knowledge of child welfare law and practice. When commissioning this course from us we will discuss with you whether or not the introduction to child care law course is also required.

Aims and learning outcomes:

  • Understand at what point a Local Authority has to get involved in a child’s life, what the local authority should do, and what can happen to the child
  • Have a working understanding of what significant harm is
  • Be clear about the responsibility of the local authority to work in partnership with parents
  • Have an insight into the child protection conference process and the roles of all participants
  • Have considered the framework for professional parental advocacy, including confidentiality policy, independence, specialist knowledge and non-confrontational style.

Who should attend:

Anyone working in the voluntary sector who is or may advocate for parents at child protection conferences and reviews.
