The Safeguarding Service has changed the way Initial and Review Child Protection Conferences are conducted. 

The revised approach aims to make sure conferences are more focussed on establishing effective plans and increase participation of parents and children.

The main difference for partner agencies is that the Conference Chair requires all information ahead of the meeting and that reports should be shared with parents in advance. Reports should be provided to the chair 24 working hours before an Initial Conference and 3 working days before a Review Conference.

There is a new Child Protection Form Report which asks professionals to identify what they are worried about and what is going well.

The new form and supporting guidance is available from the links below, as well as a pdf leaflet to inform staff of the changes.
