Grade Care Profile 2 (GCP2) Update


The Cumbria Safeguarding Children partnership has recently agreed to implement the use of the GCP2. The GCP2 is the only authorised version of the GCP and was re developed with its author Dr Srivastava, version 2 uses updated language and the colour coding makes it user friendly and engaging for parents.

The GCP2 is an evidenced based assessment tool for identifying and assessing neglect. Practitioners can often have difficulty in assessing neglect, the tool supports the practitioner to measure the quality of care provided by a parent or carer in meeting the childs needs.

The partnership have invested in a 2 day train the trainer course delivered by the NSPCC, on completion practitioners will receive a licence to deliver the GCP2 training.

The CSCP are recruiting practitioners as champions to be part of the training pool and cascade GCP2 briefings within their organisation. If you would like to undertake the training and be part of the GCP2 team or for more information please contact
