Child protection conference
families, carers and workers to talk about keeping children and young people safe from harm. The type of harm might be physically hurt, not looked after properly, being abused or emotionally hurt.
Care and pathway plans
They say what should be happening for you, what help you should be getting and how long you should need to live away from your birth family.
You should know what your care plan says. If you are old enough you should be able to sign the plan and say if you agree with what is in it.
This will be done before you move to live with a new carer. It will include things about you so your carer can look after you properly. It could include hobbies and things you like doing, medicines you take and what time you go to bed.
It is really important your social worker talks to you or someone who knows you well so that the right information is in the plan.
