Neglect and Poverty

Poverty can affect every area of a child’ development- social, educational, health and personal. Living in a poor household can reduce children’s expectations of their lives and lead to a cycle where poverty is repeated from generation to generation. As adults, they are more likely to suffer ill health, be unemployed or homeless, and become involved in offending, drug and alcohol abuse, and abusive relationships.

Who is it for?

This is a Level 2 Workshop which is suitable for all front-line practitioners who work with children, young people, and their families where Neglect and Poverty may be an issue.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Recognise the scale and impact of child poverty across County Durham
  • Awareness and understanding of what causes poverty
  • Recognise the impact of poverty on children
  • Understand ‘In Work Poverty’

A certificate of attendance will be auto-generated and received on completion of the evaluation form. Therefore it is vital that you complete this as this is the only method you will receive a certificate of attendance.
