Child Protection Approach

From 20 November 2021 child protection practitioners use the SAFER children framework to guide their risk assessment and risk management.

SAFER describes the five activities of risk assessment.

Child protection practitioners continue to draw upon the practice approaches from the Best interests case practice model.

The Best interests case practice model child and family snapshot and genogram tool remains on the child protection manual as it contains information to support children and family services sector staff with their practice.
