LSCP training and resources

Hammersmith and Fulham LSCP have a long established relationship with our bi-borough colleagues in Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster.

We have an agreement to share our learning and development resources with them and this is not going to change currently. This means that our partners in different organisations in Hammersmith & Fulham can still access all the training opportunities available here: LSCP safeguarding children training

Child exploitation and gangs awareness workshop

Systemic approaches to safeguarding children

This is an introductory session, delivered by systemically trained practitioners, to share with participants the core principles of systemic pproaches and their application in safeguarding children contexts. This session will aim to demonstrate how systemic ideas can complement existing approaches to our day-to-day work and will include a combination of presentations, discussions and group exercises.

Learning outcomes

  • Creating a learning environment in which ideas, views and beliefs can be shared in respectful and appreciative ways.
  • To gain familiarity with core aspects of systemic approaches and how they may assist in out day to day work.
  • To critically examine how issues of power, difference and privilege contribute to thinking and actions in safeguarding contexts
  • To develop an understanding of systemic approaches to assessing and managing risk with an emphasis on collaboration, rigour and coherence.

In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, the Local Safeguarding Children Partnership is working to adapt the safeguarding children training offer. The following workshops will be delivered online and bookings are now open. Instructions for how to join using Microsoft Teams or Zoom will be sent to delegates who secure a place the week before the workshop.

Private fostering

If you are looking after someone else’s child aged under 16 (under 18, if disabled) full-time for 28 days or more, and you are not the step-parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother or sister of that child, then you may be a ‘private foster carer’. The law says you must tell your local council if you care for a child under a private fostering arrangement. It is not private fostering if the arrangement was made by social services.

For more information and for examples of private fostering situations see private fostering
