CYP Systems Optimisation Group/Complex Lives SOG – Trauma Survey

On behalf of Oliver Mackie (Barnardo’s) & Sarah Goddard (Livewell SW):
One of Plymouth key objectives identified through both the CYP Systems Optimisation Group and the Complex Lives SOG is to develop a Citywide understanding and response to Trauma which starts with ensuring there is an adequate inclusion of Trauma Informed Practice in any City plan for staff development.
We are inviting all partner organisations and key stakeholders on behalf of the Systems Optimisation Group for vulnerable CYP to complete the survey below.

The prevalence of traumatic stress in the lives of the CYP and families on the edge of care is extraordinarily high. Often these CYP & families have experienced on-going trauma throughout their lives in the form of childhood abuse and neglect, domestic violence, community violence, and the trauma associated with poverty and the loss of safety and sense of security. These experiences have a significant impact on how people think, feel, behave, relate to others, and cope with future experiences.
It has become clear that understanding trauma and its impact is essential to providing quality of care at the right time and in the right place for vulnerable CYP and families.
This collective understanding has culminated in the recommendation that services serving trauma survivors adapt their services to account for their clients’ traumatic experiences, that is, they become “trauma-informed”. In order to respond empathically to the needs of trauma survivors, ensure their physical and emotional safety, develop realistic support goals, and at the very least avoid re-traumatisation, all agencies and service design/delivery must be provided through the lens of trauma.
With your input at this start point we will be able to map the current collective organisational approach to Trauma and understand gaps which will be the launch pad for arranging Plymouth first Trauma Informed Practice Network. We will use this group to share good practice and learning and take forward implementation of workforce development and sensitive routine enquiry service/city wide in relation to Trauma and importantly support one another to becoming trauma informed as organisations.
Details of the first network meeting will be announced shortly.
Thank you very much for completing this survey on behalf of the Systems Optimisation Group for vulnerable children and young people.
