Derbyshire’s Children’s Trust is seeking tenders from organisations wishing to provide training in the delivery of systemic practice to Derbyshire’s child protection social workers and other key social care personnel, in total approximately 330 staff.

The latest OFSTED inspection of Children’s and Younger Adults (CAYA) services in child protection and for ‘looked after’ children endorsed that these services are ‘good.’ However, Derbyshire is a forward thinking local authority that values its social workers and has resolved to deliver nothing less than excellent services to all families and children.

We have therefore decided to further improve the way social workers interact with families who abuse or neglect their children so that such families are provided with positive encouragement and effective tools and techniques to help them change. Research has led us to consider that systemic practice is the best approach for this complex and highly skilled work. Derbyshire County Council has agreed to commit a significant level of resource to this initiative, in anticipation of positive results for vulnerable children and their families
