HSAB and HSCB Family Approach Toolkit and Workshops

The Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board and Hampshire Safeguarding Childrens Board will be running a number of joint workshops in June and July 2019. The overarching aim of these workshops is to launch the Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton Adults and Children’s Family Approach Protocol and supporting practitioner toolkit.


The workshop will use information from the toolkit to support professionals from both children and adult sectors across the Pan Hampshire and Isle of Wight areas to understand how issues including Mental Health, Substance Misuse, Domestic Violence, Learning Disabilities and Neglect, affect all family members, including children (as well as unborn babies) and adults at risk as defined in the Care Act 2014.


Delegates will be given time to consider how the needs of children and / or adults living with hidden harm impact on the whole family, and the importance of early identification of these needs and effective communication between services is important in order to support those at risk and their families.


The content of the workshops is the same in all locations and professionals from any agency operating in each of the four local authority areas are able to book onto any event for free. The workshop will run for between two to three hours.
