This meeting is specifically aimed at:
The Child Protection Liaison Person (CPLP) within each Childcare Setting and is free to attend, although booking is required.
What is it?
Each Childcare and Play setting is required to have a nominated Child Protection Liaison Person (CPLP) who has attended both Safeguarding (Child Protection) Level 1 Training and a training session on the role of the CPLP.
If your setting does not have a CPLP please contact us to discuss this further. If you have a CPLP but they need to attend training please refer to the brochure to check when the next course is running.
Child Protection Information is also available on our website www.wokingham.gov.uk
To help support CPLP’s with their role and responsibilities we offer these meetings to keep those in this nominated role up to date with Safeguarding and Child Protection information and any related changes in legislation, as well as providing an opportunity to meet with other provider representatives.
In addition we aim to offer a theme or focus to the meeting as a way of enhancing continuing professional development for those in that role.
Note: It is the provider responsibility to notify the local authority of any staff changes in respect of this role.

Time: 7:00 to 9:30pm

Venue: Ambleside Centre, Woodley
Parking: You should consider using the Headley Road Car Park - please do not park in the residential cul-de-sac as it presents a traffic hazzard and causes problems for residents
The focus for this session will be 'dealing with adult disclosure and secondary trauma.'
As a designated person you may have to deal with a staff member or parent disclosing relating to them directly. This maybe a situation which is current or historic. Secondary traumatic stress is a potential risk we incur when we engage empathically with an adult or child who has been subject to abuse.
This session will offer an insight into team working and management of these situations.
