Child Protection conferences

If social services have serious concerns about the care or protection of your child(ren), they may set up a child protection conference to share information about your child, and discuss their concerns with you and other professionals to see if anything needs to be done to make sure your child is safe and well cared for in the future.

If you are going to have a child protection conference, your social worker will have been in touch with you to explain what's happening and why. If you'd like to know more, please speak to your social worker or read our guide to child protection conferences (PDF, 492.0 KB) which answers all the most frequently asked questions.

You can also write your own report to bring along to the conference if you like, using our standard report form .

If you don't know who your social worker is or how to contact them, please call us on 03000 41 11 11.
