Default Cyp 3.3 roles and responsibilities of the different organisations?

================================================== =
Find help for CYP 3.3 here and help with the CYPOP 6 unit here
================================================== =



Hi
this is my first ever post.
I am unsure whether i am completing this successfully but here goes!

I think i might be doing this right but could somebody confirm if i am because i'm still working on this and if i'm oing it wrong then it would be best to find out now before i go any further. This is the question

A description of the roles and responsibilities of the different organisations that may be involved when a child or young person has been abused or harmed. and this is what i have done so far.

Social services roles and responsibilities are:
• To provide support for vulnerable children and families.

• They have contact with many multi agencies and they support the work of the Local
Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB).
• They are trained to a high level to recognise any risks that the child might be in.
• The health visitor will visit parents home so they will gather information such as signs and symptoms this will enable a health visitor to start the process of the signs and concerns of abuse or neglect. The health visitor will need to have access to ongoing contact with the family if abuse or neglect is suspected.
• Health visitors should use their own judgement on when to share information with other agencies.
• They support and guide parents of young children.

• The main role of a Probation officer is to supervise offenders to help support them not to re-offend and to protect others from harm.

• They also liase with Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) such as safeguarding children, procedures covering *** offenders, domestic abuse, child protection procedures.

Police roles and responsibilities are:
• The main role of the Police is to prevent crime and disorder and protect all individuals.
• The police have legislation to adhere to to protect the children. Children have the right to be fully protected (Children’s Act 2004 to safeguard and promote the welfare of children).

• The police investigate child abuse cases (they have specialist training for this, Child Abuse Investigation Units (CAIUs)

Social services roles and responsibilities are:
• To provide support for vulnerable children and families.

Hi everyone still not sure about this but have re-done the NSPCC roles and responsibilities can anyone tell me if this is right or do i need more info.

NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) roles and responsibilities are:
• They are responsible for providing protection for children from being abused or neglected. They work closely with childline which is a service for children to ring or contact online, 24 hours a day. They have feelings games for the trained staff to identify how the child is feeling which then helps the staff to understand what help is needed. They treat every case individually with different support to help the child in need.
• They Provide support for children and families in situations such as domestic violence, abuse, drug and alcohol misuse. They prioritise the children that are at risk and work closely with children and carers and other agencies to make sure that they get the help that is needed.
• Provide a 24 hour support service via a telephone line to home-based childcare workers on whether to refer a situation to social services. For home based childcare this is important because they might not have others to talk to about situations like this. If they feel it necessary they can or the home based childcare person can refer this to children’s social care.

Heyy, I'm doing this exact question!!! Unit 3 is sooo hard :( mines due in for two wks time and i've only answered 3 questions.
You're totally on the right lines. I'm answering it in the same way as you. When it says describe roles and responsibilties it just means talk a bit about what their job is - what they do.
You're doing fine :)
I've written about 12 lines for each :) hope that helps!
Dont suppose you can help me with 1.1 on this unit?!

Hope that has helped :) x

Hi i had 1.1 signed off think it was to do with child protection course but have allready done a sheet of legislation. not sure if i have to do it again so was going to speak to my tutor. if i'm right its about current legislation which would be things like: childrens act 1989, childrens act 2004, working together to safeguard children 2006 (got most of the above from there andsussex child protection and safeguarding procedures 2006 vol 1 & 2) crb checks. Also all polices and procedures e.g. missing person, health and safety, child protection etc

I put this at the bottom of the above so will do a bit of cross referencing.
A child/young person has the rights to be protected here is some of the relevant legislation that all professionals should abide by:

Children Act 1989- A child’s welfare is paramount. When making decisions about a child’s upbringing they shall not make an order unless this is better for the child than making no order at all. Every effort should be made to preserve the child’s home life and family links. The child’s wishes and feelings must be assessed by the courts.
Parental responsibility – which is defined as the rights, duties, powers and responsibility which by law a parent is responsible for.
Children Act 2004 - together to safeguard children:
One of the new laws was physical punishment, making it a criminal offence to hit a child if it causes mental harm or leaves lasting marks on the skin.
Every child matters outcomes:
• Be healthy.
• Stay safe.
• Enjoy and achieve.
• Make a positive contribution.
• Economic well being.

*** Offenders Act 1997- requires offenders to notify the police of their names and addresses. (known as the *** offenders register.

Sexual Offences Act 2003- covers new legislation relating to offences against children such as :
• Abuse of position of trust.
• Trafficking (also covers uk citizens whilst abroad)
• Monitoring of *** offenders (*** offenders act 1997)
Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 : There was a loop hole in other legislation that allowed defendants in murder or manslaughter cases, could blame each other for the death of a child or vulnerable adult. This is now the responsibility for members of a household where they are allowing a child or vulnerable adult to be at significant risk of harm.
United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989 – this includes the right from protection from abuse, the right for the individual to express their views and listen to them. Disabled children should have the right to be cared for and services put into place either if they are living at home or they live away from home.

The Education Act 2002- this requires governing bodies, local education Authority and further education to protect, safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Adoption and Children Act 2002- amends the children’s act 1989 and now includes “harm” associated with witnessing domestic violence.

Don't know whether this helps or not i just highlighted things that had changed from old legislation.

Thankyou for replying. i have redone this so if you would like a copy let me know and i will send it to you. I have to hand in this unit in a couple of weeks to so if i can help in any kind let me know.

Hi Jenna,
I am doing course work based with no college so yeah finding it quite difficult mainly due to the way it is worded and i don't know anybody that is doing the course to talk it over with i have done my level 2 but it wasn't has hard as the level 3 (obviously) but i have a good Tutor but feel i don't see enough of him and if a i am stuck i do have work colleagues to speak too but i thing it is totally different to the nvq and much harder. Yeah very time consuming have only done this part of this unit but hope to get stuck in over the next few days perhaps we should compare notes on each task to see if we are on the same wave length so will keep you posted by the weekend.
what units have you covered so far and when did you start?

Hi Jenna
Only doing this level because i was passed by ofsted to become a supervisor many years ago and all of a sudden have ben told that my qualification has now got to be updated. I have been working in childcare for approx 18 years so not new to it but finding it hard to be studying again. i do enjoy it but quite often do too much but think i'm not doing enough. Recently one of our bosses became ill so need another person just incase other boss needs holiday or becomes ill or needs time off.

I started course in Sept, havent had anything marked off yet but my tutor looks and tells me if its ok. Been assessed alot in wokplace but still feel i'm not getting anywhere. I am going to really work hard over next couple of weeks to get thie unit done.#I have so far nearly completed SCH 31,SCH 32,SCH 33, SCH 34, CYP 3.1, CYP3.2 and now doing CYP 3.3. i have bits and bobs on other units signed off too.

I don't know whether it will help but just borrowed from work a policy and procedure cd with alot of info on so if you need any info ask me and i'll send you what i have for instances i got this info from the cd which might help you about current legislation in this unit.
