Expected Learning Outcome

  • What is meant by ‘contextual safeguarding’ and the role of the detached youth worker in it
  • Current legislation and policies that affect young people that choose to meet outside of building-based provision
  • Why some young people are considered more ‘at risk’ than others and the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
  • How to identify potential indicators of child criminal exploitation (CCE) and child sexual exploitation (CSE).
  • Identify ways to work with partners to reduce risk in the community
  • Consider effective ways to target vulnerable young people and engage them in youth work to build resilience.

Detached youth work has long been recognised as an effective way to engage those young people considered vulnerable or ‘at risk’ who choose not to access building-based youth work provision. The workshop starts by exploring why some young people are considered more vulnerable than others, the legislation and police powers that affect them (including stop & search) and the impact of peers, family and community on decisions made.

It moves on to consider contextual safeguarding, what is and youth worker’s responsibilities out on the street, and ways that detached youth work can build resilience by effectively encouraging young people to make safer choices. This is an opportunity for practitioners to explore risk and protective factors, the impact of ACE’s and discuss effective ways to engage young people and share good practice.

Additionally ALL participants will gain access to a wide range of resources, including educational materials, referral networks, and support services.
Our Experienced Trainers Support Participants Through Interactive Exercises And Facilitated Discussions, Creating A Safe Space For Reflection, Sharing And Professional Development.
