Consultation launched on the Liberty Protection Safeguards Code of Practice and Legislation

What a busy month it has been ! We had an amazing event at the start of Social Work England Social Work week,  talking about young people at risk of criminal exploitation, with over 50 people attending.

Tanayah spoke in depth about his own personal journey from a life of crime to now being one of the UK’s leading experts on working with young people who are exploited.

As you know this was a free event as part of Social Work week, we are hoping to run it again for a fee, and will update you.

Last year we had one of the UK’s leading lawyers in adult social care, mental capacity  and mental health, provide an overview of the Liberty Protection Safeguards and some of the proposed changes at that time.

We are now pleased to be able to welcome Tim back to present an overview on the recently launched and long awaited Code of Practice and legislation.

The government launched its consultation on the draft on March 17th, and we are pleased to bring this exclusive event to you all.

You can read a summary written by Tim in Community Care 

The seminar will take place on Tuesday 17th May 4.30 pm – 6pm online.

Chinara Enterprises Ltd is pleased to be hosting this seminar as part of Social Work England’s,  Social  Work  Week.

This seminar will be exploring the theme of “What social work means to me”, through exploring effective ways to engage with young people at risk of criminal  exploitation.

Participants will get the opportunity to hear directly from someone with lived experience of the criminal justice system who is now using his experience to support young people, and enable practitioners who work with young people to examine how they can effectively engage with young people.

Tanayah Sam is an entrepreneur, author and urban youth specialist who has a broad, multi-perspective experience of the British Criminal Justice system.

Tanayah is a former member of one of Birmingham’s most notorious gangs and a reformed offender.

Upon his release from prison, Tanayah dedicated the remainder of his life to helping as many people as possible who are on the cusp of, or directly involved in Gang Labelled Offending, to turn their lives around.

As a result of his tireless work, Tanayah has presented to over 20,000 people to pursue positive, constructive lifestyles in secondary education, employment, training, or further education.

His transformation has led him to working in 16 jails across England and Wales. Tanayah became a key holder in most of the 16 jails and some were jails in which he had previously served time. His wealth of experience on both sides of the fence has given him the skills to be one of the country’s leading experts on Gang Labelled Offending and Criminal Exploitation.

Tanayah has delivered CPD to civil servants and practitioners on Child Criminal Exploitation, Gangs, Youth Violence and Social Media, and they continue to deliver the training nationwide.

​TSA Sports and Education C.I.C was formed by Tanayah as a non-profit organisation that supports the development of young people through the medium of sports and education. As well as achieving national prominence, Taniyah’s work has received international recognition.

Effective working together to safeguarding children and families

Effective working together to safeguarding children and families

A reflective discussion and examination of some of the most recent criminal trials relating to child deaths.

To provide a space to reflect on lessons learnt and examine best practice in child safeguarding.

Recent reports of some of the deaths of children as a result of abuse and neglect, have once again highlighted some concerns about systemic failures within children’s social care, with much of the media focussing on the role of social workers, and not acknowledging the role of others. .

At a time when local authorities are struggling to recruit social workers, as a result of increased pressure on front  line services, this seminar will provide an opportunity to reflect on  the public perception of social workers, and the impact this has on personal and professional resilience for social workers.

It will provide a space for delegate to reflect on how they can continue to safeguard families especially during a pandemic

Who should attend?

This is for social workers/social care staff at all levels who work with children and families.

Date: Monday 7th  February 2022 6pm-7.30
