NSPCC Podcast 46

Recognising and responding to child neglect

Two-part podcast series exploring neglect and what can be done to support children and families experiencing it

Neglect is a form of child abuse that can have serious and long-lasting effects on a child’s life, but it can be difficult to recognise.

In the first episode, Dawn Hodson, the NSPCC’s development lead for neglect, Mandi Tambourini-Moore, a family support worker for Liverpool Children’s Services, Lisa Shannon, the Graded Care Coordinator from Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council and Sharon Graham, an Early Help Manager at Shropshire Council discuss:

    • what neglect is and some of the harder to spot signs of neglect
    • the difficulties and challenges when conducting assessments
    • issues and challenges that arise in relation to children’s age and stage; covering early years, adolescence and additional needs.
    • what they’ve learnt from their experiences and what they find works when supporting families.
