When will we see this happening?
The Children and Young People’s Partnership - made up of senior managers and practitioners from the Council, Health, Police and voluntary organisations - will lead on this change in Wakefield.
Signs of Safety will support the development of a common approach to working with all children, young people and families. This approach will be developed to be used from single agency work to early help through to child protection cases, looked after children and those with complex care needs.
Practice leads, staff and partner agencies will have training on how to use the Signs of Safety principles, tools and disciplines to build the skills, knowledge and application of the model across senior leaders, practitioners and partners to drive a whole system change.
For Signs of Safety training please see the
multi agency training program of Wakefield District Safeguarding Children Board.
