Safeguarding Children Assessment & Analysis Framework (SAAF)

This 2 day training course is run on consecutive days. The SAAF course is designed to help those working closely with children make analysis of the level of harm suffered or likely to be suffered by the child; the risk of re-abuse or likelihood of future harm; and the prospects for successful intervention in cases that professionals find complex.


The focus of the SAAF is on analysis and decision making and enabling practitioners to evidence the rational underpinning their recommendations and decisions.

The course incorporates:

•Knowledge (practice wisdom and up to date research findings);
•Skills development (core skills of observation, listening, interviewing, recording, gathering information, analysis, reporting, decision making, planning, intervention, reviewing and evaluation); and
•Values and related skills (working with all children and young people, parents and carers, family members and other professionals - recognising and valuing diversity and difference
