The Dignity of Risk
Subtitle: A practical handbook for professionals working with disabled children and their families
Christine Lenehan, Jan Morrison and Jonathan Stanley
Based on the experiences of Shared Care services, this handbook has been written primarily with these services in mind. It will be useful for providers of short-break services, in-home care such as sitting services, befriending schemes, play schemes, weekend leisure services and after-school clubs. However, much of the policy and guidance is transferable to other settings and it will be of interest to schools and residential settings.
Each chapter outlines essential elements of good practice and policy, with references and examples of forms used by different service providers. The forms have been adapted for publication in this handbook. Last few copies left. Also available as an ebook.
