This half day workshop aims to raise awareness of the purpose and function of the Child Protection Case Conference and Core Group Meetings to increase understanding and effective participation. The workshop will engage participants in considering:

  • Roles in Case Conference and Core Group Meetings: their own, inter-agency and the family/child.
  • The purpose and function of the Case Conference and Core Groups.
  • Their own presenting skills, how information/assessment is analysed and potentially how decisions are reached within the Case Conference.
  • The needs and rights of the family/child in the Case Conference and Core Group processes.
  • The shared responsibility of core group members in driving the child protection plan forward and how to challenge drift and inactivity.
