Family Safeguarding Model – 17th February 10- 11.30am (via Teams)

The Family Safeguarding Model is a strengths-based approach which looks to support parents to make positive changes to family life when they are referred to children’s services. It aims to keep families together, with bespoke and tailored packages of support around domestic violence, mental health and substance misuse. The Family Safeguarding Model is a pioneering approach to providing help for families in need. By bringing together children's social care professionals with specialists in adult mental health, domestic abuse and substance misuse we will provide tailored wrap around support for parents. This seminar will be delivered by Darren Knibbs, Strategic Lead, Telford and Wrekin Council and Emma Martin, SDM Family Connect, Telford and Wrekin Council and will provide further detail on the model itself and how it has progressed since its launch in June 2021, along with information on the Threshold of Needs.
