Three Houses and Safety House Tools

Designed to help bring the voice of children and young people into child protection and social services work, the Three Houses information tool and the Safety House tool have had international success and are used worldwide. The Three Houses is an effective tool designed to involve children and young people in the child welfare planning and assessment process. The Safety House is a tool that brings the child’s voice into the process of safety planning. Social workers can use the Safety House tool to help elicit the child’s views on what specifically needs to be happening in their families to ensure that they are kept safe.

This half-day group consultation/refresher is intended to allow Butte County practitioners time to discuss the implementation of these tools; both the strengths and challenges that have been faced to date, and what can be done to assist in the successful future implementation.

Please bring examples of times when you have used these tools or have considered their use.
