“I work with the team, foster carers and young people in creating strategies that ensure our young people are kept safe from harm and that their behaviour does not cause harm to other vulnerable people, especially children.

The process is designed to encourage our young people to take incremental steps towards managing their own behaviour, and to be able to discuss difficult feelings openly. To this end the Safeguarding protocol is fully integrated with the Therapeutic programme, underpinned by the multi-disciplinary Case Discussion/Safeguarding Meeting, which I chair and which includes the Therapist, Supervising Social Worker, Social Worker and Carer. Where appropriate the Meeting will involve the participation of the young person and other primary figures involved with their care.”
