Hidden Children – Working with Traveller Families

7 December 2-4pm – book herelogo1

The workshop will explore and explain the work undertaken by the Travellers Support Unit; how they gain and build on relationships made within the Travelling families that frequently stay within the boundaries of the Brighton & Hove local authority. It will help you understand some of the cultural issues with regard to Travellers, be more informed around the types of Traveller families that come to Brighton, better understand some of the language used by the Travellers, and have an improved appreciation of why Traveller children may be even more vulnerable.



This session is presented as part of the Learning Together to Safeguard the City Week where Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB), the Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) and the Safe in The City Partnership Board come together to raise awareness of safeguarding issues and promote how we can best work together to protect, and improve outcomes for, the most vulnerable in our society.

The aim of this week is to reveal and debate some of the most important issues in our city which affect individuals, their families and the wider community, as well as exploring the responsibilities of professionals in their everyday work and their contribution in keeping people safe and well.

All sessions can be booked through the Brighton & Hove Learning Gateway: learning.brighton-hove.gov.uk
