Child Protection Conference
An initial Child Protection Conference is designed for parents and carers to discuss the care of a child. Its main purpose is to see whether your child is at risk of harm and, if so, to agree what needs to be done to reduce this risk.
Entitlement to a solicitor
You have the right to the presence of a solicitor at a Child Protection Conference. It is important to be accompanied by a solicitor who can advise you with regard to any plan or observations made.
The meetings can be very stressful for all family members. Our specialist Child Law Solicitors can support you through the process by giving you advice and attending the meeting with you.
Potential Court Proceedings
If you have received a notice informing you of potential court proceedings, it is important that you contact us immediately. With timely expert advice, court proceedings can be avoided.
