Implementing the Early Help Assessment and Planning Tool

This training course provides an overview of the new Early Help Assessment and Planning Tool. The new tool replaces the Common Assessment Framework (CAF) and Family eCAF system, both of which were phased out in May 2016. This new process will still provide a shared assessment and planning tool for use across all children's services. There will be a continued need to promote a coordinated and collaborative approach to meeting needs. It is anticipated that this new process lead to fewer children and young people in need of specialist assessments and support.

Signs of Safety 

Achieving for Children is implementing Signs of Safety from 19 June 2017. The Signs of Safety model promotes strong relationship building and enables practitioners across different disciplines to work in partnership with children and families to maintain a focus on building safety within the family.
