Training: Ensuring best practice in safeguarding interventions

24th June 2022 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Course outline

In safeguarding and child protection, the provision of specific help or support to address a concern is commonly referred to as an intervention. Early intervention, or early help, is frequently referred to when a family or child needs support and is the recommended action rather than waiting for a situation to escalate. Timely support can be increasingly preventative and protective.

Successful intervention needs careful monitoring and reporting and should be undertaken with the understanding that the intervention is temporary. There needs to be a recognised point where the intervention has been a success or a failure, and another process undertaken. Depending on the type of intervention put in place, there also needs to be a clear understanding of the professional boundaries for all involved, especially in the cases where an individual child/young person is being given support.

This training session will use case studies to demonstrate to delegates the recommended process of implementing, managing, reporting and closing interventions and support to promote the best outcomes for the person/people receiving the help, those delivering it, and all other parties within the setting.


Training topics will include:

  • Assessment of the safeguarding need and implementation of strategies
  • Managing, reporting and decision making
  • Exit strategies
  • Exploring professional boundaries.


Learning outcomes:

  • Understanding safeguarding interventions and how these can vary
  • Increased understanding of the need to monitor and report interventions/help
  • Recommended methodology for implementing and withdrawing interventions.



  • All practitioners working with children, young people or vulnerable individuals, DSL/DSO, DDSL, Safeguarding Manager/Lead.
