Description
The Authority is looking for a training provider to deliver a series of training to the Council’s Edge of Care Team. The Edge of Care service will support children and their families where the child is aged between 10 and 17. The Edge of Care service seeks to resist all admissions to care for children in this age group. However, there will be particular focus on those aged 13+ years in recognition of compelling research that care solutions do not positively impact upon this cohort unless there are significant and critical child protection issues to address. The service will work tenaciously and creatively with families to address any issues which ordinarily would result in children coming into care. There is a requirement to train up to 15 edge of care team members in facilitation of non-violent resistance (NVR) and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) approaches. In addition a 3 months period of time to support the team to embed the learning with service users will be required. We also intend to train ‘resilience foster carers’ and supervising social workers in the same approach. Therefore we also require this to be provided for up to 20 individuals with practice embedding time allowed.
