Signs of Safety Practice Leads Session - Building a Safety Network

This half-day workshop is for Signs of Safety Practice Leads working within Children’s Services.

It will focus on the subject area of Building a Network.

Every traditional culture knows the wisdom of the African saying ‘It takes a village to raise a child’. A child who is connected to many people who care for them will almost always have a better life experience and be safer than an isolated child.

So, safety planning work always involves requiring that the parents get as many people as they can be involved in helping them create a safety plan.

One of the most important aspects of involving an informed, naturally occurring network around the family is that this breaks the secrecy and shame that typically surrounds situations of child abuse.
The aim of this workshop is to support you with group supervision process so as to help practitioners build networks with families.
