'Signs of Safety' is a relationship grounded, strengths orientated approach that was originally developed to support effective child protection practice.  In the UK, this approach is now being used within a range of settings across the continuum of need including Early Help, Safeguarding, Child Protection, Children in Care, Care Leavers, Youth Justice etc.

This is a whole day course for anyone working with children and families and who is, or could be, involved in multi-agency working using a Signs of Safety approach, for example

  • Attending Child Protection Conferences
