Tusla has developed a video for professionals working with children and families on Tusla’s National Approach to Practice - Signs of Safety. It has been developed to support professionals in making referrals or reporting concerns to Tusla. The video will introduce professionals to Signs of Safety, cover the principles and key components of the approach and detail how Signs of Safety is applied at every stage of Tusla’s work with children and families; reporting, assessment and intervention.  Through a true to life case study, the viewer is guided through what they can expect as a referrer when they report a concern, the kind of questions they may be asked and how each stage is linked to safety planning.
