Three Houses Tool: An Introduction


The Three Houses tool is an information gathering tool designed to bring forward the voice of children and young people in the safety planning process of child welfare practice. Within the Safety Organized Practice child welfare framework, the tool allows child welfare professionals to ask the three key questions of SOP (what's working well; what are we worried about; and what needs to happen next to ensure future safety?) in a way that children can understand and respond to.
