Investigation on Neglect was launched in 2006 in Sweden by the government. The aim was to examine instances of neglect during their placements in foster homes or institutions. For example, there have been children who have been constantly hungry, who have had to endure abuse from foster parents or staff in institutions, who have been subjected to both mental and physical abuse, who have not received proper schooling due to hard work or who have been deprived of contact with their biological family.

The Signs of Safety method involves a collaborative approach, fostering open dialogue and trust with parents, enabling us to comprehensively understand the family dynamics and challenges they face. It focuses on strengths in the families, building trustful relations with them and making safe plans for the child.
