Child protection review conference definition
Under 1 minute read
Its purpose is to decide whether:
- The child is still suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This will involve looking at the child and family’s progress against outcomes set out in the child protection plan.
- The child protection plan needs to be amended, or is no longer needed.
The review conference will usually have the same conference chair who led the initial conference.
If the child protection plan is to continue, further child protection review conferences should take place at least every six months.
