Signs of Safety is coming to CAF

Cheshire East is adopting Signs of Safety as our way of working with families so that we can fully involve families in creating and developing their plans. Using Signs of Safety will mean that there will be some changes to how we work at CAF , and the CAF forms will be changing so they support this way of working. 

The forms will look quite different and hopefully you will find them easier to use. The new forms will be introduced from 1 March 2018. 

In the CAF training sessions in December 2017 and February 2018, we will be explaining how to use the new forms as well as the current ones. If you have already had CAF training, don’t worry - we will be offering some CAF / Signs of Safety awareness sessions during January and February 2018, so that you can feel confident to use Signs of Safety in your work.    

In the meantime, please continue to use CAF s in the usual way; we will explain how existing CAF s   will transfer into the new format at the awareness sessions. 

Dates will be published soon here and you will be able to book on in the usual way.
