Code: SGC/22/0018 Capturing the Views & Wishes of Disabled Children (Cancelled)

The need to successfully capture the views and wishes of children is a concept that is both philosophically shared as well as embedded in legislation. Those of us working with disabled children need to draw on a skills base of creativity, flexibility and advocacy in order to ensure the voice of each child is captured, valued and used to influence and enhance the quantity of disabled children's lives and experiences.

Code: SGC/22/0044 Signs of Safety Awareness for Partners (am session)

This session is designed for workers who need to: Know about the introduction of the Signs of Safety framework in the council and partner agencies, and understand the basic concepts of Signs of Safety to assist them in their job role. This 3-hour session is relevant to employees who: - will not be using the Signs of Safety approach directly with families, but will see it in practice and need to understand its simplest form - need an introduction to the approach before they go on to do more specific role-relevant training. These half-day workshops are provided at no charge to South Glos Children’s Partnership partner agencies. As with all the local inter-agency courses though, a 'no show' on the day will result in a £30 per person 'penalty' fee to the agency.

If an employee needs to learn more about using the Signs of Safety model in their job role, they will also want to book themselves onto a 'Signs of Safety In Practice' workshop. These run regularly during afternoons on the same days as the morning 'awareness' workshops. Delegates need to book on those afternoon workshops separately.
