Child in need plan

This is a plan that sets out what extra help children’s services and other agencies, including health and education, will provide for a child in need and their family.

The plan should be drawn up in partnership with the child and their family after a child in need assessment.

The plan should:

  • Set out what help and services will be provided, and who by
  • Define clear outcomes that can be measured (so it will be clear whether or not the child is making progress)
  • Make clear what is expected of the parents
  • Reflect and build on positive aspects of the family’s situation, as well as any difficulties.
  • The scope of the plan will be determined by the complexity and severity of the child’s needs.
