NCB are pleased to announce a trauma-informed practice webinar series for providers of supported accommodation, drawing on the expertise of our special membership groups, including the Anti-Bullying Alliance, the Childhood Bereavement Network and the Council for Disabled Children. Each webinar will explore a key topic relating to the impact of trauma on children and young people, with an emphasis on what supported accommodation providers can do to support young people in their settings.
- Attachment and trauma: how childhood experiences and attachment styles can be influenced by and contribute towards trauma.
- Bullying and trauma: the risk of bullying and how it affects young people
- Bereavement and trauma: the relationship between trauma and grief and how services can support young people.
- Special Educational Needs and trauma: how young people with special educational needs are exposed to and impacted by trauma.
This webinar series is being delivered through the NCB’s Sector Awareness and Provider Preparedness programme in relation to the quality standards, registration and regulation regime for supported accommodation for young people aged 16 and 17 who are in or leaving care.

- Definitions of bereavement
- Risk and protective factors that influence how young people cope with bereavement
- The relationship between trauma and grief
- How friends, staff and wider services can support young people impacted by bereavement
