eBulletin Edition 41
Welcome, to the December edition of the E-Bulletin. Well, what are year it’s been! One that we will never forget - although, it has brought a new meaning to the Aretha Franklin song, “Who’s Zoomin’ Who?” At the end of the e-bulletin, I have created a game called Conference Bingo, based upon common sayings in video meetings.
This edition includes information on;
- Early Help Service Questionnaire
- Children’s Mental Health
- Childhood Neglect
- Updates to the Greater Manchester Procedures
- TSCP Training
- National Grief Awareness Week
You will be aware of the changing situation around Covid-19, for the latest information please visit:
Early Help Service Questionnaire
Colleagues in the Early Help Service are undergoing a peer review with colleagues in Stockport.
As part of the process they would like to hear what you think. Please follow the link if you wish
to take part in the consultation.
Early help offer review online survey for practitioners and team leaders
Children’s Mental Health
With support from colleagues in Mental Health services, TSCP have developed a webpage around children’s
mental health which sign posts to local and national resources.
Mental Health and Well-Being
The TSCP and colleagues in Early Help & MASH have developed a webpage outlining the
Neglect Strategy and support available to colleagues if they suspect a child is being neglected.
Updates to the Greater Manchester Procedures
The Greater Manchester procedures have been updated for December 2020. There is some excellent
resources within the GM Procedures for things when you need them, such as dealing with sexual
harmful behaviour, honour based violence etc. If you haven’t got it on your linked favourites
you can add
Greater Manchester Procedures here!

Voice of Child from Greater Manchester Procedures
It was my pleasure to attend the Children's Commissioner's Better Care System virtual event last week. It was
good to see that the expert panel was a group of Young People. There are no better experts of the care system
than those who use it. So with the daily grind of our jobs, it is important to refresh our knowledge of the
Good Practice – Supporting The Voice of The Child procedure and to continue listening and responding to children’s views.
Good Practice Supporting the Voice of the Child
We currently have numerous online courses with places available. As alluded to in a previous e-bulletin,
the training schedule for Signs of Safety has now being released. There will be a two day course that is
spilt into four half-day sessions in December, February, April and June.

National Grief Awareness Week
2nd December 2020 to 7th December 2020
On average 600,000 people die a year in the UK. Everyone experiences death in their life but talking about
grief is still a taboo topic. For more information about national grief awareness week please visit
