Child Protection Conference

Child Protection Conference

“What is a child protection conference?”


Child protection enquiries are undertaken when a member of the public or an agency reports concerns that a child may be being harmed or neglected. When the enquiries show that a child may have been harmed or may be harmed in the future, a meeting called a child protection conference is held. The purpose of the Child Protection Conference is to bring together family members, the child where appropriate, and those professionals most involved with the child and family and to decide on whether the child/children need formal Child Protection Plans to safeguarding and promote their welfare.


As a parent or carer the events leading to this child protection conference may have been stressful and possibly left you feeling confused, angry and upset. The aim of this leaflet is to explain why a conference is being held and how you can have your say.
