This is Dumfries and Galloway Council's response to the Hammond Report which formed the Inquiry into the Circumstances Surrounding the Death of Kennedy McFarlane. This Report reviews the recommendations of the Inquiry and sets out planned action.
This is the second report submitted to the Scottish Executive in line with the Guidance for Child Protection Committees published in January 2005. It is a review of key policy and work over the past year.
These guidelines are a revision of 'Drug Misuse and Dependence: Guidelines on Clinical Management' published in 1991. A comprehensive set of guidance is provided for doctors in the assessment, treatment and management of drug users and drug misuse.
Introduction to a guidance pack intended to provide information and advice on some of the pressures that vulnerable children face in society and offer alternative routes to prevent damaging behaviour and negative outcomes such as self-harm, substance misuse, sexual exploitation through prostitution and running away.
This exercise provides a good basis for challenging values and attitudes and can give trainers evidence in assessable training. This is useful for practitioners across the services, volunteers, and newly qualified staff. The exercise lasts approximately 45 minutes and is suitable for a group of 12 -15.
This is the second in a series of guides on developing and implementing Integrated Care Pathways (ICPs). This guide identifies the steps involved in developing an ICP and examines each process in more detail.
It is aimed at anyone involved in commissioning, planning, developing, delivering and evaluating services for drug users.
This online guide suggests some simple steps that can be taken to make children safer, and to understand better how and why people sexually abuse children and how we can stop them.
It includes information on: who are the abusers?, how do abusers control children?, how do abusers keep children from telling?, what makes children vulnerable? and leaving children in the care of others; hints and tips; talking with your children; children out and about; and what to do if you suspect abuse.
The aim of this workshop is to dispel the fears of people who are relatively new to child protection issues, and those who feel it is a muddy area of legislation and uncomfortable procedures for themselves and the children and young people they work with.
The beauty of this workshop is it can be used for introduction to child protection issues or to update existing knowledge or beliefs. The exercise lasts between 1 to 3 hours and is suitable for groups of 3 to 20.
