Information for parents and carers
You can find lots of information about services for children and families in need of support.
Child protection duty team
Our Child Protection Duty Team leaflet [601Kb] provides information about the duty team and how to contact us. One of our main roles is to provide advice and guidance to the public in relation to any concerns about the care of children.
Child protection investigations
Our Child Protection Investigations leaflet [416Kb] provides information for families who have become involved in child protection investigations to help them to understand why people are concerned, what is likely to happen during the investigation, what will happen after the investigation and where families can get help.
Child protection case conferences
Our Child Protection Case Conferences leaflet [570Kb] provides information about case conferences. These are arranged to get people together to share information about your child and your family and to consider whether your child is at risk of being abused or neglected.
Childcare Fieldwork Services
Childcare Fieldwork Services [1Mb] provide assessment and longer term support to children and families. We can support you to look after your children and help you to meet your parenting responsibilities.
Our information sharing [315Kb]leaflet will help you understand what we do with information about you and your child and how we share certain information with other people or organisations.
