All Initial Child Protection Conferences and Review Child Protection Conferences will be held virtually from Tuesday 24th March 2020.
Children and their families will be contacted in advance of the meeting to explain why the meetings are being managed differently.
Social workers will speak with children before the conference to gain their views and information on school attendance.
If you have any queries, please contact the allocated Independent Chair or Social Worker.

Face to face training is all currently cancelled in line with government guidance. However e-learning can be accessed from your own devices, including mobile phones, as it is an externally hosted web-based system. There are many useful and appropriate courses to choose from.
If an individual was booked on the 2 day, please suggest they complete the Awareness of Child Abuse and Neglect – Core.
