Core Group Meetings are meetings which will take place after a child has become subject to a Child Protection Plan following a Child Protection Case Conference. The Core Group Meeting will be made up of relevant professionals involved with a family and the parents. A schedule of Core Group Meetings will be agreed. The purpose of these meetings is to turn the Child Protection Plan into a “workable” document for all involved.
It is vital that all frontline professionals working with vulnerable children and families have easy access to good quality, reliable legal information and advice. The Child Protection Project's remit extends to looked after children and this is an exciting new resource for independent reviewing officers.
