One day course

Conversations with Children & Young People under the Social Services and Well-being Act 2014 and other arenas for assessing Children & Young People’s Well-being Outcomes

Under the Social Services and Well-being Act 2014, children who are eligible for Care and Support Services will need to be involved in What Matters Conversations and the Co-production of their Well-being Goals.  There has been a culture change in the way we work with people of all ages in Wales, including children, a move from doing to, to doing with children & young people.  The course will look at the legislative framework in Wales, the context for What Matters Conversations, and how to conduct assessments with children & young people.  The training will give participants the knowledge and practical skills in conducting assessments, using play and creative techniques and activities from preparation, to conducting assessments through to what happens after.  The course will use a child rights based approach which is an overarching duty within the Act.

This one day course will consider:

  • An overview of the Social Services and Well-being Act 2014
  • The framework of Children’s Rights within the Act
  • The context of What Matters Conversations
  • The purpose of assessments
  • The 5 elements of assessments
  • The difference between Well-being and Welfare
  • Barriers to participation
  • Co-production and what it means in practice
  • Skills and Resources needed to engage with Children & young people
