The Western Australian Department for Child Protection and Family Support (CPFS) adopted the Signs of Safety as its child protection framework and began a system wide implementation in 2008.
Resolutions Consultancy has worked with CPFS since that time assisting in the implementation. Over that period CPFS has held four Signs of Safety Gatherings, the most recent on October 25 to 27, 2016. At the 2016 Gathering, CPFS Director General Emma White gave a speech acknowledging and thanking Andrew for his and Resolution’s work in assisting CPFS implement the Signs of Safety since 2008. In response Andrew gave the following speech on behalf of himself and Steve Edwards to mark the handing over of the approach to CPFS.
This speech is important because it spells out how Steve and Andrew see the approach and who ultimately owns it.
