NSPCC Survey

Cherylynn Wray - Sunday, February 04, 2018 -

The NSPCC are launching a project titled 'Professionals Breaking the Silence', which aims to develop a practical resource that will support professionals working with children to confidently deal with disclosures of abuse and to improve children's experiences of the disclosure process.


A crucial first step to developing our resource is to hear directly from individuals about their experiences of dealing with disclosures. Therefore, we have created a survey to gather the views and opinions of individuals who work both directly and indirectly with children and young people, for example: police officers, sports coaches, social workers, GPs, health visitors, teachers, teacher assistants, school counsellors, school nurses or anyone else who works in a school,youth workers, foster carers, adoptive parents or anyone involved with children through the family court system.


The survey is expected to take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and all submissions are anonymous. The survey launches w/c 29th January and will close on Sunday 25th March.


The responses to this survey will help to fill a gap in NSPCC's understanding about how professionals approach and understand the process of listening to children and young people when handling disclosures.


Thank you for your time.
