Being Heard: Communication in the Care System - Heywood

Foundations of care

Need a hand navigating the system? 

Children and young people in care often need others to advocate on their behalf and carers are well placed to do this. This session will increase carers understanding about how to be the best advocate for the children in your care as well as how to engage others to advocate for you.

 
• Understand the out-of-home care system, including the new Child Protection structures and how best to navigate these complex structures
• What it means to be an advocate and how to use the opportunities made available to you
• Understand the roles and responsibilities of carers, community services agency staff and Child Protection staff
• A range of effective communication skills that will empower you to have difficult or challenging conversations.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FACE TO FACE TRAINING SESSION HAS BEEN POSTPONED.  IF YOU REGISTER YOUR INTEREST, WE WILL NOTIFY YOU WHEN IT IS RE-SCHEDULED AS AN ONLINE TRAINING SESSION.
