Briefing Session - Signs of safety 1st March 2018

Published: Monday, 8th January 2018

Signs of safety is one of the main methodologies Rotherham Children's Social Care is introducing as part of its continuing improvement in safeguarding children.

It is extremely important that all safeguarding partners understand this approach and the implications for multi-agency safeguarding meetings. RMBC is therefore offering a briefing session for partners on the morning of our next Board meeting on 1st March.

We hope that you or a colleague will be able to attend this session so that we can begin the process of embedding the approach and its language in our safeguarding practice in Rotherham.
