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.
The Child Protection map is an interesting and accessible tool which allows users to clearly and quickly see which section is most relevant to them and read about it.
