Following on from ASH Scotland’s pilot project of Children Carers and Second-hand Smoke, they have now secured funding to continue the training workshop throughout Scotland over the next year.
The training is designed to equip workers with knowledge, skills and confidence to better support parents/carers to protect children from SHS and provide strategies to assist them.
This training supports the Scottish Governments ‘Take it right outside’ campaign and the GIRFEC principles of helping to keep children safe, healthy, respected and nurtured. The training also fits with protecting children’s rights, improving their life chances and other key outcomes of the Scottish Government Early Years & Child Poverty Strategies.
This workshop is designed for staﬀ, paid or unpaid, whose role involves supporting families with children under five. This will encompass family support workers, befrienders, home/school link workers and early years staﬀ from both voluntary and local authority based organisations.
The training will be held at Forth Valley Sensory Centre on Tuesday 12th May 2015, 9.30am to 4.30pm. Refreshments will be available on arrival and at breaks, but lunch will not be provided, although there are facilities available to purchase your lunch.
