This month Luke Billingham (Hackney Quest) discusses sports cages: why they matter to young people and communities and why and how we should consider them as part of Contextual Safeguarding. A podcast, report and brand new resource included!
This briefing explores the relationship between Contextual Safeguarding and Relationship-based Practice within social care and related youth and community work. It considers the potential for bringing these two ideas together to create child protection practices that utilise relationships to build safety in extra-familial contexts.
Ida Cohen is Liquidlogic’s Senior Consultant Social Worker. With a background as a service manager in children’s social care, she explores the potential benefits of delivering case management functionality to support Contextual Safeguarding interventions.
