Total Respect

This one day training course is aimed at all professionals who work with looked after young people including social workers, social work team managers and foster carers.

It is facilitated by looked after young people and care leavers.

The course shares the experiences of looked after young people and encourages you to recognise the importance of the participation of looked after young people in decision making and in their everyday lives.

The training consists of a range of interactive and thought provoking activities which helps refocus you on the feelings and experiences of young people in the care system and can be applied to all direct work with young people.
The aim of this course is to focus you on the feelings and experiences of looked after young people and to explore how the participation of young people can improve their experiences. It also aims to encourage you to think about the role of an advocate, and how and when they can advocate on behalf of young people.

  • Recognise the importance of listening to and taking into account the views of young people and practice this in your work to promote participation and to improve the services young people receive alongside their experiences
  • Reflect upon the experience of young people of being in care and how these experiences affect them
  • Carry out the role of an Advocate for young people where appropriate and know where to seek support for young people in cases where this is not possible
