Contextual Safeguarding Masterclass with Dr Carlene Firmin


Dear Colleague

The COVID-19 virus has led to significant calls on all of our time and a need to ensure that people are available to complete core tasks. Because of this and linked to the government and WHO guidance and communication from the University of Bedfordshire we are cancelling  the Contextual Safeguarding Masterclass with Dr Carlene Firmin on Tuesday 5th May.

We will look at possibilities for rearranging this or a similar masterclass for later in the year where possible and will contact you to offer you first refusal if we do manage to secure a new date.

In the meantime you may find it useful to watch the TEDx talk that Dr Firmin did on Contextual Safeguarding: Re-writing the rules of child protection. Synopsis:
“In this groundbreaking talk Dr Firmin, the founder of Contextual Safeguarding outlines three things. One: how contexts beyond families are associated with abuse. Two: how traditional child protection systems fail to engage with these contextual dynamics. Three: the components of the Contextual Safeguarding system that would redefine what child protection means.”

We hope that you understand this decision. We will keep you informed of developments as soon as we can. For LSCP events, please keep an eye on the website training pages for any updates going forward or sign up on the website to receive the LSCP bulletin.
