Undertaking Connected Person’s Assessments – September 2022

  • Facilitator: Rinisha Tailor
  • For: Social Workers
  • Venue: Face to face – Mansfield

Family placements can often be fraught with difficulties due to family dynamics, lack of understanding around safeguarding concerns and issues impacting upon carers’ capacity to meet a child’s needs.

We know that, wherever practicably possible, children should remain within their birth families so robust assessment of these placements is essential.

This one day training course will look at best practice in undertaking Connected Persons Assessments (Form C), the collection of relevant information and how to provide a robust analysis of this. It will consider the legislative/regulatory backdrop to these placements and the implications of the same for both the carer and the subject child.

The day will include going through the sections of the Form C, what information is required in each section and how this information can be obtained. We will be reviewing case studies and looking at serious case reviews to explore the challenges that assessor face and how to overcome them.

The course aims are:

  • To gain a general understanding of kinship placements: what does research say?
  • To understand the statutory framework for assessment
  • To examine the key areas of assessment of the connected persons’ assessment
  • Considered implications for practice
  • A focus on child protection and positive outcomes for children
  • Risk versus resilience
