New Core Groups Guidance Available

Author: Lisa Burn

The Guidance recognises the importance of Core Groups and builds on the message arising from previous case reviews that a Child Protection Plan on its own does not keep a child safe. It is hope well we work together that makes the difference.

 

Key features:

 

  • Anyone can chair and anyone can take the minutes but no one can do both so they need to agree who is taking which role
  • Whoever takes the minutes must ensure they are circulated to all core group members within 5 working days
  • The plan needs to be actively considered at every core group
  • Parents & children ~ if age appropriate & of understanding should be part of the core group. That might mean that the chair & social worker (if they are not the chair) have to think about what bits of information are shared when in the meeting.
  • Social workers are responsible for ensuring any new members needed for the core group are invited to join the group

The Guidance can be found here

Real Knives, Real Lives - The Campaign Film

Author: Lisa Burn

The Youth of Walsall, a youth cabinet group for 11-18 year-olds, recently launched a film as part of their ‘Real Knives, Real Lives’ campaign.  The hard-hitting short film demonstrates the risks of carrying knives. The film has been produced by the Youth of Walsall, in partnership with Fixers UK − a charity that supports young people to make films about issues that matter to them.  The group’s aim is to help create positive change for young people in Walsall. With this campaign, they hope to educate young people at risk of committing knife crime about the potential impact of their actions.
