The training sessions will provide:
- a brief overview of the role of the Reporter
- an explanation of the Reporter’s decision making framework
- an understanding of where neglect fits within Grounds for Referral
By the end of the session, attendees should have a greater understanding of:
- the role of the Reporter and their decision making
- where neglect fits within Grounds for Referral, and what evidential requirements are needed
- when and how to refer to the Reporter for consideration of compulsory measures of supervision
- how referral agencies and reports writers can assist Reporters
