    It’s with much excitement that I am bringing to you the first episode of Season 2 of my podcast. You will notice some changes that come with this trailer including a change of name from the SILP School podcast to the Safeguarding and Domestic Abuse Sector Podcast. This really shows how I am looking to go to the next level in this season. A more focused name, guests who will not only give great learning but also support and challenge your practice. I cannot wait to hear how each episode impacts you the listener and I am so excited to embark on the next stage of this journey with you.

    Ep 031: How to Build Reviewer Capacity from Within the Partnership

    Ep 031: How to Build Reviewer Capacity from Within the Partnership

    In this episode we have an opportunity to gain insight into what happens when a team of professionals from a partnership attend SILP training. 2 & a half years on, Margaret Tench shares with me the experience of her & her colleagues, including the challenges they have faced.

    Margaret also shares her advice for any team considering building reviewer capacity from with the partnership.

    Have you undertaken a similar approach within your partnership? Did it work well? Let me know & we can speak about it on the SILP School podcast.

    SILP works in Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews, Safeguarding Adult Reviews & Domestic Homicide Reviews. There are many differences of approach, but the principles I share in SILP School work across all 3 types of review.

    Ep 029: How to Reduce the Number of Meetings & Redrafts in Your Review

    Ep 029: How to Reduce the Number of Meetings & Redrafts in Your Review

    Whether you are involved in Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews, Safeguarding Adult Reviews or Domestic Homicide Reviews, you will be familiar with more traditional review models in which the standing panel is at the centre of all the action. But how ready are you to consider something different?

    Have you experimented & what were the results?

    I don’t know how ready you are to wave goodbye to your standing panel, & I’m not in favour of losing all that this panel brings.  So all I ask is that you listen in & approach this episode with a growth mindset. If, at the end, you know it’s not the right next step for your reviews, I am comfortable with that.

    Ep 028: Same Learning, Different Recommendations

    Ep 028: Same Learning, Different Recommendations

    Whether you are involved in Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews, Safeguarding Adult Reviews or Domestic Homicide Reviews, you will at times see your reviews revealing a recurrent issue. But how do you avoid repeating the layers of improvement action already recommended & creating the potential for new outcomes?
    Join me & Julia Greig, who is a Service Delivery Manager working in Adult Social Care who completes individual management reviews or IMRs as part of her role.
    We reflect on the issues which have come up time & time again in Julia’s local area as well as considering how to take an intuitive look at what happened last time to create maximum potential for change.
    Recommendations & report writing are part of our summer theme for 2021. My invitation to you is to join me on Tuesday lunch times in my FREE online network for Tuesday takeaway lunch time sessions to enable you to build your network.

    Ep 027: Fixed Mindset v Growth Mindset

    Ep 027: Fixed Mindset v Growth Mindset

    Whether you are involved in Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews, Safeguarding Adult Reviews or Domestic Homicide Reviews, you will at times hit a point in which  the way forward is less than clear. I did when I was establishing my independent review practice. I was still developing my own individual style.
    In this episode I share where the spirals of self doubt would lead me. Alongside the positives I am now able to recognise & draw on which may help.
    I can now also identify more clearly what might differentiate what I did from some others I have seen who have struggled.
    Without the mistakes I wouldn’t be so clear about my values. I made them so you don’t have to. Have you undertaken the SILP assessment yet? Click the link below to find out more about your own qualities & values.
