‘Are you listening to me?’ LCSPR Webinar
In October, Birmingham and West Sussex Safeguarding Children Partnerships jointly published the ‘Child A’ Local Child Safeguarding Practice Review; the review found that services involved with the family didn’t fully understand Child A’s lived experience and the impact of her childhood trauma. This was an incredibly distressing and unusual case where tragically an innocent young man lost his life.
You can view all the LCSPR documentation on our BSCP2020-21/02 webpage.
On 14th November both partnerships jointly hosted a webinar, which began with an overview of the case, led by Joanna Nicolas (Lead Reviewer) focusing on the emerging themes and learning identified from the review. This was then followed by a session delivered by Jahnine Davis (Leading Specialist in Adultification) on adultification and intersectionality, and the impact this has on safeguarding practice from a practitioner’s perspective. The webinar ended with a Q&A session, hosted by Dr Jane Armstrong, with attendees posing questions to Joanna and Jahnine.
