Somerset Safeguarding Children Partnership recognises the importance of keeping practitioners up to date with the latest research, knowledge and best practice available in child protection. Training is developed to provide a multi-agency experience which complements the single-agency and professional learning opportunities offered by individual agencies.

Free Effective Early Help for Families in Somerset Training

Starting April 2021 we’re running a series of six ‘bite-sized’ workshops aimed at giving participants knowledge, skills and resources to support the needs of families as part of an Early Help response in Somerset.

These workshops have been developed by multiagency partners from Children’s Services, Education and Health coming together to share their expertise and unique perspectives of Early Help in Somerset and cover the core elements needed to help support families.
