|Event Introduction||Achieving for Children is implementing Signs of Safety from 19th June 2017. The Signs of Safety model promotes strong relationship building and enables practitioners across different disciplines to work in partnership with children and families to maintain a focus on building safety within the family.
These briefings are an introduction to Signs of Safety and will give staff and partners an opportunity to hear about Achieving for Children’s intended implementation plan, as we set off on our journey to roll out Signs of Safety over the next couple of years. The briefing sessions will be led by internal Achieving for Children staff.
|Event Content||Signs of Safety is a partnership and collaboration grounded, strengths-based, safety-organised approach to child protection work. Signs of Safety expands the investigation of risk to encompass strengths, it can be built upon to stabilise and strengthen the child’s and family’s situation.
Signs of Safety is an approach which focuses on the question, ‘How can the worker actually build partnerships with parents and children in situations of suspected or substantiated child abuse and still deal rigorously with the maltreatment issues?’
These one hour and 15 minutes briefings are aimed at people who:
• Undertake ‘direct work’ but it is not therapeutic or directly related to a child protection/early help/welfare focused assessment
• Won’t be using Signs of Safety in their own work but will be attending meetings where it is used and discussed.
• Don’t work directly with children or families but work with people who do.
Once you have attending a briefing you may find that you want to attend further training. We strongly recommend that colleagues attend these briefings if they are in a business support staff role in Achieving for Children or partner agency and will be supporting practitioners in front line roles.
|Event Learning Outcomes||By the end of the briefing delegates will:
• Have a clear overview of what Signs of Safety is
• Understand Achieving for Children’s implementation plan to rolling out Signs of Safety
• Understand how Signs of Safety can be used as a standard model for communication
• Be informed of the training opportunity for your organisation in Signs of Safety
