Safehouses have been second to none with the support and training that they offer…they do as ‘it says on the tin’; we have had several Parent and Child placements and Safehouses have always been available for us. We had a couple of incidents with one young mother and the Safehouses out of hours Social Worker was very supportive and offered sound advice-this was followed up by a visit from our Supervising Social Worker the next day who helped us to reflect on our training which really put things into perspective.
Just one recent example is the support Safehouses have given regarding family contact arrangements for one of our foster children. Safehouses sorted out somewhere nice to meet, convenient for the parents, and a Safehouses social worker provided supervision for the contact meetings.
