In cases where a social worker is concerned about the neglect or abuse, or risk of neglect or abuse of a child or children, it is possible that they may arrange something called a case conference.
These often happen when social services are confident that matters can be resolved, and when social workers feel that they can work with the family concerned effectively.

Such meetings involve the family involved as well as the social services professionals, and usually involve working out a plan to enable the family to make changes.
If the social workers deem it necessary, a decision can be made to put a child’s name on the Child Protection Register. This is a list of children who are known to have been abused or are at risk of being so, and is very serious indeed for the family and child involved.
After this happens, review meetings usually take place to see if improvements have been made. A decision can then be made to remove the child’s name from the register, keep it on the register, or potentially a number of other courses of action.
