Learning how to safeguard children is essential for everyone, especially for those working with children on a regular basis. This CPD accredited Child Neglect training course teaches your staff what neglect is, how to recognise the effects of neglect, understand the work of professionals in children’s social care and, most importantly, how to spot and report any of their concerns.
This online Child Neglect course also goes into detail about the effects on physical and mental health emotions, along with the cost and effects of neglect to society as a whole. Child neglect is the most common form of child abuse, so it’s important your staff have the correct knowledge and confidence on how to respond to child neglect appropriately.
It is also important that any person working with children knows the up-to-date child neglect UK laws. Under the Child Neglect Act (Children and Young Persons Act 1933) anyone who neglects a child is guilty of an offence.
