CATCH – Children and Trauma Community Hub – helps education professionals build their knowledge and understanding of:
Previously looked-after children
Children with a social worker
CATCH (formerly The Adopter Hub) was originally developed as a pilot in 2017 with a grant from the Department of Education to provide accessible information and support for adopters. It has now grown to partner with education professionals in recognition of the vital role they play in helping children to reach their full potential.
CATCH is a valuable tool for all schools and education professionals wishing to take a trauma-informed approach in their work supporting children who have been adopted, are looked after or have a social worker.
In this video the Digital Hub Manager, Tania Sentobe Bruun, provides an introduction for education professionals, including what’s available on the Hub and how to navigate our newly designed resources and webinars section.
CATCH will help education professionals to:
Become trauma informed
Understand the impact of childhood trauma, abuse and neglect
Understand the behaviours children who have experienced trauma may exhibit
Learn how they can best support a child who has experienced trauma
