Graded care programme: scale-up evaluation
The NSPCC has published findings from an implementation evaluation of the scale-up of the Graded care profile (GCP2), a tool which helps professionals measure the quality of care being given to a child. Findings from 46 interviews and 446 surveys with professionals who had a role in implementing GCP2 in their organisation include: when the tool was well embedded, practitioners felt it improved their practice and that families had benefited from its use; referrals were felt to be clearer and more likely to have an impact; some families were reported to make positive health and lifestyle changes as a result of the use of the tool.
Spotlight on Child Neglect…….
The Herefordshire Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) Business Plan 2017/19 states that work is required to identify and deal with childhood neglect.
As a positive step forward the Board has purchased the NSPCC tool - Graded Care Profile 2.
GCP2 is an assessment tool that supports practitioners to make a judgement about whether or not parental care is neglectful. The tool helps practitioners to measure the quality of care given to a child, and make it easier for professionals to spot when sub-optimal parenting is putting a child at risk of harm.
