The SILP methodology is tried and tested in over 150 cases. We have worked with many boards who have returned to us to conduct SILP reviews for them or have built in -house capacity to deliver the model themselves.
Those who have worked with SILP have commented on the openness and honesty of the process, with more active engagement of practitioners and evidence of speedy and tangible changes ‘on the ground’.
“It was an excellent process . . . the very positive feedback we have received and in respect of your management of the process…the learning has been invaluable to both myself and the SCR Sub and we are very pleased to have had the opportunity.”
Helen Willis, Local Safeguarding Children Board Coordinator North East Lincolnshire
“I would like to thank you for the support you gave during this process and felt that it was extremely helpful and has given us the opportunity to reflect on practice and raise issues that need addressing.”
Lisa Thornton, Independent Chair, Quality & Performance Team, Lincolnshire
“I had lost sight of the child in my recording and focused on the adults needs. The SILP process, albeit a painful experience was extremely therapeutic. The multi-agency element has changed my recording practice to be more robust on the purpose of contact, detailed analysis and planned outcomes for the child”

“The SILP process allows for more meaningful learning, its less threatening for practitioners, so they are willing to engage as all agencies work together to identify the learning outcomes with the help of the facilitator, rather than being told what they are by a panel. The SCR can lose sight of the learning in favour of producing a good enough report.”
