PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT OF A PERSON’S RISK TO WORK WITH CHILDREN
Under the Children & Young People (Safety) Act 2017 , any person employed in a children's residential facility established or licensed by the Department of Child protection must undergo a psychological assessment to determine that person’s risk level and suitability. White & Associates Psychologists offer this service.
The purpose of the assessment process is to:
• explore potential risk factors and mitigating factors for individuals applying to work with vulnerable children and young people
• determine each person’s suitability for safeguarding children and young people.
