Conference report formats

Voice of the child tools

The North East Lincolnshire voice of the Child Tools and guidance will enable a consistent approach to capturing the voice of the child.  It is a unitary wide tool for capturing the voice of children/young people from 0 to 18.

Criminal Explotation

This guidance is primarily aimed at frontline staff who work with children, young people and potentially vulnerable adults.

Child Sexual Exploitation

Young Minds Matter  (YMM)

YMM provide specialist services for children and young people up to the age of 18.

Consent and information sharing

Practitioners have advised that there is some ambiguity around when it is appropriate to gain consent. Information sharing is vital to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. These guides give an understanding as to when consent is required and information sharing is appropriate.

Safety in sports

In North East Lincolnshire we want all children to be safe whilst having opportunities to take part in healthy activities they enjoy. In recent reports it has shown that children can be vulnerable when involved with sport and leisure activities. As an organisation we have a responsibility to safeguard children and to inform families about staying safe whilst their child is participating in sporting and leisure activities.

Domestic Abuse – Coercive Control

Research in Practice for Adults and Women’s Aid have developed a website for social workers and other health and social care practitioners to develop their knowledge and skills in working with situations of coercive control.
