8 SAFETY IN ALL THE WORK WE DO THE SAFETY OF THE CHILD AND FAMILY MUST REMAIN AT THE FOREFRONT. Here are some ways that we focus on keeping chil- dren safe in all elements of the Core Practice Model Transparency and full disclosure. We communicate clearly about worries among the family and the Department. Building our partnership from shared goals helps keep children safe. Teaming with people who know the child youth and family. Building rapport with team members as well as the family means more people are looking out for the children including those who know the safety worries in the family. Building a village and safety net pays off even when we are not around and enables us to develop a deeper understanding of the family. Working the team agenda. The team agenda addresses child safety in multiple areas Non-negotiables make clear that child safety is the bottom line and help the team understand what must happen to keep children safe.
