Power Hour - Child Protection Conference
We are launching a Power Hour all about Child Protection Conferences on the 18th September at 9-10am. These will run on 18th of each month at the same time in the safeguarding unit at Mary Woollett Centre. Come along and rid yourself of the worry and anxiety of attending a Child Protection Conference. It will help you feel prepared and understand why we do it the way we do. It will also give you an insight into and enable you to reflect on what it feels like to be a parent who might perceive this to be a daunting meeting and how you can help them feel more prepared and able to participate. This will also count towards your training hours and it is perfect for if you have never attended a Child Protection Conference or as a refresh if you have attended many!
