Developing an effective response to Neglect

The Child/Young Person’s Neglect Toolkit is designed to assist you in identifying and assessing children and young people who are at risk of and experiencing neglect. It is to be used when you are concerned that the quality of care of a child/young person you are working with suggests that their needs are being neglected.

Somerset SCP have developed a Cascade training pack which provides the information and resources that will support you in training people within your organisation in developing an effective response to Neglect and how to apply the Neglect toolkit to inform your assessment of need. The Neglect Toolkit is a tool to aid discussion in supervision and for the clarification of the issues, designed to support not replace professional judgement.
