KFP 1: Secure Base
Making sure social workers have a secure base within which to operate is critical to organisational resilience, and is the first Key Foundational Principle. A secure base provides:
- A sense of protection, safety and feeling cared for.
- A constructive challenge for workers to explore fears and threats relating to practice and organisational change.
- A ‘safe haven’ that offers support, nurtures energy and provides resources for wellbeing and improved practice.
