Code: BH/19/1278 Strength Based Approaches to Safeguarding

An overview of key strengths based approach to child protection assessment followed by a presentation of a key strengths based approach; Signs of Safety. The Signs of Safety approach is a relationship-grounded, safety-organised child protection framework designed to help families build real safety for children by allowing those families to demonstrate their strengths as protection over time. This strengths-based and safety-organised approach to child protection work requires partnership and collaboration with the child and family. It expands the investigation of risk to encompass strengths and signs of safety that can be built upon to stabilise and strengthen the child’s and family’s situation. Central to this approach is meaningful family engagement and, in particular, capturing the voice of the child. A format for undertaking comprehensive risk assessment - assessing for danger and harm and the possibility of building safety – is incorporated within the one-page Signs of Safety Assessment.
