Signs of Safety is an innovative, strength-based approach to facilitating family change across the continuum of need from early help to high risk child protection. It provides a methodology to map concerns, engage families in a plan and deliver interventions where children will notice the changes in their lives. SoS uses ideas from systemic family therapy to motivate parents and galvanise both multi-agency professionals and the family’s own network to finding creative solutions to issues of need and risk.
Signs of Safety is a key methodology in Barnet’s Resilience Based Practice model and used alongside systemic and other ideas in our social work case work practice. It works best when these ideas and practices are shared within the multi- agency partnership.
