Keeping Myself Safe: Practitioner’s toolkit for developing effective relationships with vulnerable young people

Action for Children, August 2014

Action for Children have developed a new practitioner’s toolkit which gives young people in our residential services a voice and offers guidance to the practitioners who support them.

Focusing on safeguarding issues such as risk taking behaviour and self harm, the toolkit explores the skills and qualities which practitioners should have if they are to build effective professional relationships which can enable young people to build their resilience, develop confidence and manage risk in their lives.
