Public Sector Network Tender Alert


Safeguarding and Radicalisation in Children's Social Care Services

Expressions of interest (EOIs) are sought to investigate and review our understanding of how Children's Social Care (CSC) services are managing cases of radicalisation or extremism amongst young people aged under 18. We wish to better understand the challenges that social workers and others in the CSC sector face, and the practice they have developed in their approach to such cases. Importantly, the project will explore what local authorities are doing when cases of radicalisation and extremism amongst young people do arise, and which systems and practices seem to be the most effective in mitigating the risks. This includes best approaches on reducing a child's engagement with negative influencers online and effective methods to diverting a child away from further engaging in terrorist activity. This will be used to inform learning across the sector and support cross-government work to improve the consistency of social work responses to radicalisation cases. This includes supporting the enhancement of existing training packages, as well as the development of new CPD. Please see the EOI advert in Attachments for further details. The deadline for submissions of an EOI is 9am Tuesday 18th August 2020
