Caring for Separated & Trafficked Children
Many separated refugee children may have been trafficked or had traumatic experiences en route to the UK or in their home countries, and it's vital that practitioners are able to respond to the needs of these children.
With the support of the Department for Education, the Refugee Council and ECPAT UK are offering face-to-face training for Local Authority Foster Carers and Support Workers in accommodation placements on the care of separated children seeking asylum and child victims of trafficking.
To better understand and recognise the signs and risks of exploitation, including trafficking and radicalisation
To explore how to build trust in order to prevent them from running away from a safe placement
To understand and respond to the particular needs and vulnerabilities of this group of children
to understand when and how to refer children to the right agencies, or to support them to access the right help
We're hosting several training days at Refugee Council offices for those in the London and South East regions:
Courses are also being hosted by Local Authorities:
- Walsall - 15th February
- Southampton - 25th February
- Staines-on-Thames - 25th February
- Worthing- 26th February
Cancellations, please give at least 48hrs notice (working days) so that we can offer your place to someone on the waiting list. Unless in case of medical or care emergency, giving less than 48 hours notice will forfeit your right to a place on the course, and your Local Authority may be charged.
