Social Work Events Signs of Safety: What can change, and what’s harder to change?

This event is part of the Making Research Count (York) programme which aims to promote communication and knowledge sharing between academics and social work and social care professionals.


Jo Moriarty, King’s College London

Jo Moriarty is a Senior Research Fellow, and Deputy Director of the Social Care Workforce Research Unit (SCWRU) at King’s College London. She is particularly interested in the translation of research into practice, and people’s experience of social care services.

In this seminar, Jo will talk about SCWRU’s evaluation of Munro, Turnell and Murphy’s Signs of Safety approach to child protection casework.

She will discuss some of the challenges faced by the pilot local authorities in implementing Signs of Safety, highlighting aspects that were more amenable to change and those that were harder.

The seminar aims to be a dialogue, with delegates’ insights and experiences being welcomed.
