Event description

Description

We are pleased to announce our new training course: Gangs, knife crime and county lines; using a contextual safeguarding* approach to inform practice. Sessions have been arranged at three venues and you can book your place below at our introductory offer price of £99 (usually £125).

*The approach of Contextual safeguarding was originally developed by Dr. Carlene Firmin at the University of Bedfordshire's Contextual Safeguarding Network. This technique recognises that young people are influenced by a whole range of environments and people outside of their family.

Using a new interactive, research and theory based tool aimed at practitioners, participants in the training will:

  • Use the contextual safeguarding approach to develop understanding of gangs, knife crime and county lines.
  • Via different characters​ aged 9 to 24, explore different roles, risks and responsibilities within gangs
  • Using compelling research based ‘characters’, assess the risks of grooming, entrapment and serious violence within the gang for a number of different individuals
  • Evaluate risks within the gang in terms of gender and roles and across the life course
  • Through an interactive street map linked to the gang members, evaluate safeguarding pathways for individuals and evaluate the potential risks associated with different types of interventions
  • Explore professionals within the context of communities who are key in assessing risks and safeguarding children and young people involved in gangs
  • Explore and have the opportunity to develop a tailored action plan within a safeguarding framework for working with gangs
