Communicating With Young People Apps

Child and Family Training have also developed three iPad communication and assessment apps for use with children and young people.

The Hope for Children and Families Programme

Promoting children’s health and development: building on strengths and overcoming difficulties, using evidence-based assessment and intervention with children and families.

Child and Family Training (C&FT) is a not-for-profit organisation that:

  • develops evidence-based approaches to assessment, analysis, planning and intervention; and
  • provides customised, skills based training for practitioners and managers working with children and their families

The C&FT 12 month programme for NQSWs in assessment, analysis and intervention delivered in Surrey County Council for three years has been positively evaluated.

MAPChiPP Project

C&FT are working in partnership with MAPChiP (Multi-disciplinary Assessment and Participation of Children in Child Protection Proceedings), a European project, developing a 'train the trainer' programme for practitioners in child protection.

Intervention Resources

DfE funded the piloting of the Hope for Children and Families Programme’s Intervention Resources to enhance the quality of direct work to improve outcomes for children, in particular those being neglected.
