Last Chance! We are repeating: Signs of Safety (SOS)

The Signs of Safety (SOS) model is about building on strengths and safety already present within families to create resilience and encourage families to find their own solutions to what’s happening in their lives. Safety and wellbeing is not created in services but within families homes.  SOS IS a strengths based, safety –organised approach to child protection work. It expands the investigation of risk to encompass strengths and signs of safety to make an overall judgement about safety using a safety and well-being scale of 0 -10.
