Cambridgeshire Children’s Services use the Family Safeguarding model which is a strengthsbased, whole system approach to children’s safeguarding. Social workers are co-located with
Specialist Adult Practitioners in domestic abuse, mental health and substance misuse as part
of multi-disciplinary teams.
Motivational Interviewing is a core element of the Family Safeguarding model ,supporting
families in dealing with a variety of mental health, substance misuse and domestic violence
issues; planning and connecting them with the resources they need to achieve such change
and helping them to find their own personal motivation for positive change.
A structured workbook is used by practitioners for recording case notes with the aim of
improving information sharing, streamlining processes,
