Coronavirus Update:  Due to Government advice Solihull Local Safeguarding Children Partners took the decision to suspend the delivery of face to face multi-agency safeguarding  training. We are carefully monitor public health advice and guidelines and have submitted a plan to resume training to the SMBC recovery process, however this will not now be considered until the new year.

Audio power points & Virtual training; we are able to deliver some of the Module's via WebEx & will notify people if their training will take place virtually. We are also developing new shorter virtual training sessions, and we have developed some audio power points for self-directed learning. 

If you are thinking of requesting a place on face to face training for the new year please read the following: Information for those wishing to attend LSCP training  LSCP training risk assessment sans souci risk asessment Sans souci one way plan 

At present bookings are still being taken for all future courses as normal and we will update people regularly on the situation as it evolves. If you have any questions please email

Neglect in Covid 19

Leeds Safeguarding Children’s Partnership have been kind enough to share some short clips they have recently commissioned from Professor Jan Horwath presenting a series of videos focusing on the experiences of children and young people living with neglect during lockdown; the clips include what children may be experiencing during lockdown with signs and indicators children may display as lockdown is lifted.

Episode 1- An introduction form a child perspective

Episode 2-Disorganised neglect

Episode 3- Emotional neglect

Episode 4 Depressed, passive & physical neglect


Solihull LSCP aims to provide a comprehensive range of multi-agency training for managers and practitioners that support the delivery of the LSCP improvement priorities around neglect, exploitation and early help, as identified in LSCP Multi Agency Safeguarding Workforce Development Strategy.

The LSCP training events aim to add value to agency specific in-house training by providing practitioners with essential skills in partnership working to safeguard children using agreed multi-agency competencies informed by evidence from national and local experience, including serious case reviews .
These multi-agency competencies do not replace the agency specific competencies that practitioners may need to function effectively in specific roles. Practitioners must therefore attend in-house agency specific training and have a foundation level of safeguarding understanding at the very least before attending multi-agency events.
In conjunction with your managers and your team, you should decide what courses you need to meet your organisational needs, however we would recommend consideration is given to attending one day of multi-agency training per year.  For details on the training courses we offer, please go to our Training Programme.

For further information on how to book a training course, please go to our How to book page.

When booking please be mindful that all safeguarding training carries with it emotionally difficult conversations and subject issues that may affect you personally, not just professionally. Please consider where you can access support to discuss these if needed (this may include speaking to the trainers, colleagues, your manager or your employment assistance service for example)
