Event description

Description

To raise the profile of Looked After Children (LAC) and Care Leavers (CL) and promote their health and well-being.

Evidence suggests that the experiences and needs of looked-after children and care leavers are not always well understood by all the professionals who come into contact with them. Developing training, with levels appropriate for a wide range of professionals, will increase understanding of this diverse group of children and young people and can do much to support high-quality care, promote educational stability and achievement, and encourage timely access to services to help maintain or improve emotional health and wellbeing.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Have an understanding of legislation, policy and guidance for LAC and CLs
  • Have an awareness of the specialist LAC team within the trust
  • Have an awareness of demographics and statistics locally and nationally relating to LAC and CLs
  • Understand the importance of the voice of the child and how to advocate effectively from this
  • Receive knowledge on useful and practical tools which can be used when working with and seeing LAC and CLs
  • Be able to identify risk factors relating to mental health and trauma
  • Learn about the impact of adverse childhood experience, trauma, and the impact of insecure attachment
  • Understand issues around stigma
  • Learn about future implications and health outcomes for CLs
  • Have an awareness of the supporting network for all LAC & CLs
  • Understand the importance of collaborative approaches when working with LAC and CLs

Presented by:

Kim Cook - Interim named nurse for LAC

Kev Brown - Children Services CiC Team Lead
