Are you taking an intersectional approach when working with children and young people?
A child or young person’s identity and lived experience can affect how they engage with professionals and services.
This episode features Jahnine Davis and Nick Marsh, founders of Listen Up, where we explore intersectionality and its application within safeguarding practice. Ineke Houtenbos, a senior consultant at the NSPCC, leads the discussion around:
- what intersectionality is
- why intersectional thinking is important in safeguarding
- the impact of not taking an intersectional approach when working with children and young people
- the challenges in capturing intersectional experiences during assessments
- how you can apply intersectional understanding to your work and develop your social care practice.
