Poverty, parenting and social exclusion: how can your agency support you in accessing and using knowledge to be poverty aware?

Part of e-Learning courses

It is now increasingly understood that there are different types of knowledge, all of which contribute to the ability of people working in children’s services to do their jobs well. Understanding the types of knowledge that are available, and having access to this knowledge is an important aspect for anybody who is working with families that are living in poverty. The first part of this e-learning resource explores the different types of knowledge that exists to aid you in your day to day work. Having been introduced to the different types of knowledge, a series of questions will enable you to rate how your agency performs in allowing and encouraging you to access and disseminate the different types of knowledge. Once you have reflected on this you will be able to see suggestions on how you can enhance the performance of your agency in the areas that you felt could be improved.

Poverty, parenting and social exclusion: how sensitive to poverty and social exclusion are you in your daily practice?

Part of e-Learning courses

Despite poverty and social exclusion being common characteristics of families involved in the child protection system, there is evidence to suggest that professionals struggle to truly incorporate an understanding of the impact of poverty in their assessments and interventions. In practice, social workers and other professionals continue to have difficulty in making sense of the complex interplay between poverty, social deprivation, parental capacity and children's development. This e-learning resource will let you explore your own sensitivity to poverty with the help of six separate scenarios, each highlighting a different issue faced by families living in poverty. After you have worked through the six scenarios, you will be able to see your level of sensitivity to poverty and social exclusion.  You will then be able to match your responses to examples of how to deal with the situations in a sensitive manner, reading the ideas behind each approach The e-learning resource concludes with a short video clip of a family member relating the importance of a sensitive attitude towards poverty.

Poverty, parenting and social exclusion: what resources can you access to help you support families?

Part of e-Learning courses

Research on families involved with child protection services in the UK reveals that many share the common experiences of living on a low income, suffering housing difficulties, and social isolation. The children and families experiencing these factors may often feel that they have few choices available to help them. This e-learning resource explores the complex issues that often surround these children and families. Through a case study, you will have the chance to reflect on an assessment of possible neglect and support services that could be of assistance to them. You can then compare your reflections with the findings of the social workers who undertook the assessment and find out more about the possible services available to the family.
