New NYSCP campaign: #AskMe…Have the Conversation

North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership are proud to launch the new #AskMe…Have the conversation campaign.

The #AskMe…. Have the conversation is a campaign aimed at professionals across North Yorkshire to encourage them to have conversations with new and expectant parents about how they are feeling about a number of aspects of having and caring for a baby. The key messages are derived from a series of common things that are often a concern to new parents and have been developed in conjunction with the learning identified from our recently commissioned thematic review identifying learning from three similar cases of non-accidental injury to non-mobile infants.

The campaign is not designed to replace any of the work already undertaken through NYSCP including the work around SUDI, ICON or the resources accessible through the Lullaby Trust. It aims to raise awareness with frontline practitioners of the need to ask parents how they are feeling around aspects of caring for their baby in those crucial first few months of life. The campaign recognises that the arrival of a new baby is a big life changing event, and it can be hard for new parents to share with professionals that they are struggling. It is therefore crucial that frontline practitioners have the confidence to explore with new and expectant parents how they are feeling and how they are coping with these changes.

The campaign has produced a series of social media posts which will be shared on NYSCP platforms this week via Facebook, Instagram and X . Please look out for the posts and share so we can promote the campaign as far as possible.

Central to the campaign will be the #AskMe…Have the conversation knowledge hub, which will house all the information and resources professionals need to have these vial conversations with parents and carers.

The session will include a presentation by two designated Safeguarding nurses highlighting learning from a recent thematic review to open the learning event and outline why the campaign is so important. Partners have the opportunity to view campaign materials and resources that are collated to support the campaign.
