Working Alongside Families: Experts by Experience -Derby
This training course has been developed using the voices and experiences of affected families, to aid the evolution of the workforce in supporting families who are experts by experience of child sexual exploitation (CSE). The course has been produced with the support of members of affected families who want to assist practitioners in considering and reflecting on their own, and organisational practices. They share their experiences of services, the court process, the impact of CSE on them as parents as well as on their child and wider family. Delegates will be encouraged to consider different models of practice and how we work alongside families.
Training will compliment the NWG Parental Support Benchmarking Tool which has been designed to support agencies to examine their current offer to parents affected by child sexual exploitation and to think about the next steps to improve engagement with parents as a safeguarding partner.
