Neglect Strategy and Toolkit

East Sussex has developed a East Sussex Neglect Strategy and Operational Practice Guidance (Sept 2017) and Neglect Toolkit and Matrix to assist practitioners in identifying and assessing children and young people at risk of neglect. This guidance lays out identifying and responding to neglect across the Continuum of Need, assessment and care planning guidance, and threshold for step up.  It provides guidance on the use of chronologies and discusses culturally competent practice.

If you would like to learn more you can watch the Neglect Webinar for Practitioners which introduces the East Sussex Neglect Strategy and Operational Guidance as well as introducing how to use the Neglect Toolkit and the Neglect Matrix
