Managing Allegations Overview:
Our Managing Allegations course explores the challenges associated with allegations and complaints against those that care for children and clearly outlines the processes and procedures that should be taken. It discusses the effects on those directly involved in both the investigating team and those who have had the allegation made against them as well as challenges to those also associated. From this, the course explores the best strategies to manage and support the individuals and families involved. The course also questions how carers can minimise the likelihood of allegations through good practice.
