About the Signs of Safety Knowledge Bank

The Signs of Safety Knowledge Bank is an online library of the best examples and learning resources for child protection workers and leaders.

Signs of Safety has always been a practitioner’s model, and there is a strong commitment to making the core practice tools and techniques available to everyone. A selection of resources covering the core of Signs of Safety is free; organisations can subscribe to give staff access to a more advanced and extensive library.

Sharing what works

We started with the simple idea of sharing what worked for one person with others, gathering what works into one central Knowledge Bank— from a danger statement that worked well, to a complete case example or implementation plan.

Resources when you need them

We designed the Signs of Safety Knowledge Bank to be mobile friendly, on demand and at your fingertips. It has advanced search and filtering tools that allow you to find the exact resource you need.
