Effective Family Resilience SSCB Workshop
Date & Time:
Effective Family Resilience SSCB Workshops
Effective Family Resilience”, Surrey Safeguarding Children Board’s Level of Need document will be formally launched on 1 February 2019. This will affect the lives of children and their families living in Surrey and was agreed by all our partners. Workshops are being rolled out to all staff and partners to inform them of the document and how we can effectively work together to support families.
Target Group: All practitioners and managers in voluntary, independent and statutory agencies who work predominantly with children, young people and/or their parents/carers and who could contribute to supporting and developing resilience in children and families.
Course Aim: To understand and be able to effectively implement Surrey’s new levels of need (Effective Family Resilience and Family Safeguarding models).
What is Effective Family Resilience?
We want to promote the upbringing of children within their birth families and will work with those families to ensure children can remain safely at home. Effective Family Resilience explains how together we will act as soon as problems emerge, share information and provide effective, timely support to enable children and their families to overcome difficulties and become more resilient so that they can manage future life challenges independently.
Some children need extra help to achieve their potential and this may be because they have additional needs or because of family circumstances, adversity or events outside their control. We want to identify and help these children and their families at the earliest opportunity in ways that do not leave them feeling singled out as different.
Early help may be offered at any point in a child or young person’s life. We seek to offer support early to help families solve problems or to reduce the impact of problems that have already emerged. To do this we need to work together in an open way with the child and their family to gain their confidence, identify strengths and needs, to find practical and achievable solutions, and to provide the right amount of information, advice and support.
The Early Help approach will be called ‘Family Resilience’ and the Social Work practice model ‘Family Safeguarding’. Within this we have identified four levels of need: Universal, Early Help, Targeted Early Help, and Specialist. These are set out in more detail in the workshops
The training will be multi-agency and will consist of a briefing on the thresholds and case studies.
It is an excellent opportunity to network with partners and to get a better understanding of the work done across the partnership.
