Keeping Children Safe in Cheshire East

Guidance on using Signs of Safety 

Signs of Safety was developed in child protection services, so this is the umbrella term that we use for the approach. When we use Signs of Safety within different services we adapt it to those situations and it is known as:

  • Signs of Wellbeing at prevention and early help
  • Signs of Safety at child in need and child protection
  • Signs of Stability for work with cared for children and young people and care leavers

Resources for work in each of these areas are included below.
