“Welcare always has responded creatively to the changing needs of the communities we serve.”
We kicked off the new year with a staff training event to increase awareness and understanding of emerging areas of complex needs. This included particular reference to problems such as serious youth violence, Child Sexual Exploitation, Female Genital Mutilation and mental health/emotional well being.
The training event was facilitated by Howard Jones, our external social work consultant and safeguarding supervisor, and all sessions were interactive, combining overviews of the relevant issues, group discussions and feedback.
Anna Khan, Welcare CEO, said: “Welcare always has responded creatively to the changing needs of the communities we serve. I was impressed with the depth of knowledge and skill of our social workers and front line staff who respond with professional skill and compassion to the complex needs of the children and family who turn to us for practical and emotional support and advice.”
