The Purpose of Signs of Safety:

"To enable child protection agencies to deliver all their services with a rigorous focus on child safety and wellbeing, and to set up their practice, policy, procedures and organisation so that the practitioners can do everything possible to put the parents, children and everyone naturally connected to the children at the centre of the assessment and decision-making. To give the family every opportunity to come up with and apply their solutions before the professionals offer or impose theirs. Full involvement of family and network is always pursued, whether the child lives within or outside their family and kin, so that everything is done to sustain the child’s lifelong connection with their family, culture and community of origin throughout children’s services involvement."
