Family Support Process training

Course aim

The Family Support Process Core training will give you a good working knowledge of the Family Support Process including how to gain informed consent; how to complete the Family Support Form; who to involve; when to share information and how to plan the next steps.

In addition, as it is a multi-agency training course it offers you a chance to network with colleagues from other agencies.

Who should attend?

This training is suitable for people who work with children and young people aged 0-18 years or people who work with adults who have children. It is a multi-agency training course, and is open to all agencies and services in Norfolk.

We recommend that even if you have previously attended either CAF or FSP training that you join us on this one day training as the Family Support Process now incorporates the Signs of Safety approach

We recommend that at least one worker from your agency attend.

Full day course (9.15am - 4.30pm) except where stated

How much does the course cost?

Nothing, all our training events are free!  However, if you need supply cover, your agency will need to fund this.

Although the courses are free they do have a cost implication for Children’s Services if people don't attend.  With this in mind please ensure that you advise at least seven working days in advance if you cannot attend.  To do this get in touch with the locality contact
