28th October 2016

This ½ day workshop aims to raise professional awareness of these new Guidelines which replace the “Protecting Children Living in Families with Problem Substance Use – 2005” (Orange Book). The guidelines provide an operational framework applicable to all statutory and third sector agencies and practitioners, to ensure that they work together to promote the welfare of children and safeguard them where parental alcohol and/or drug use may adversely affect them.

All staff attending this training are expected to have previously completed GIRFEC and Level 1 Child Protection training.

Participants are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the guidelines to get full benefit from the training:
