The SaFa® training series is underpinned by Encompass’ special expertise in working to help create safer families - families able to meet children’s and young people’s needs for safety, security and self-worth. The SaFa training series are stand-alone workshops, with benefits from attending both sessions.

When faced with multiple complex issues and the involvement of multiple agencies, it can be difficult to ‘hold it all together’ in working with families towards the possibility of change. A commitment to client-directed planning can seem at odds with ‘imposed’ goals around child safety, and working with other agencies to ensure integrated support planning brings its own challenges. This workshop examines:

  • effective inclusive support planning with families whose lives may appear chaotic
  • inclusive planning in which the process itself engenders hope and promotes change
  • working through relationship to craft effective responses and avoid drift of focus.

Who should attend SaFa training?

Child protection workers in government and community based services, including Family and Child Connect, IFS (intensive family support), statutory intervention services and FIS, alternative care and reunification services, Family Wellbeing services and RAI services. Both experienced workers and those newer to the field will benefit.
