Derby City Children's Social Care Procedures

1.1.2 A Strengths Based Approach

Derby City Council has implemented a Strengths Based Approach. By doing so we aim to achieve stability and reduce risk for children and young people. We also aim to increase the wellbeing and resilience of families. Strengths Based Approaches encourage the involvement of children and young people and their families in decision-making so that they are more in control of the support they receive and thereby their everyday lives.

For further information on how we will use a Strengths Based Approach in Derby click here.
