We are delighted to be able to launch our new ‘Child Protection Conference’ leaflets, which have been redesigned following feedback from children and young people.

At the Corporate Parenting Committee last year we received feedback from the Children in Care Council asking us to look again at how we communicate what happens during these conferences for both children and parents.

Officers have worked alongside the Children in Care Council to produce the leaflets and they will be used with immediate effect.

Cllr Sara Bolton, Cabinet Member for Safeguarding and Young People said:

“This is an excellent example of our Pledge to listen and act on the comments from children and young people. We have heard their views and then acted upon them.

“The Children in Care Council has been invaluable in helping us get the importance of this difficult and sensitive subject communicated in the right way and using the right words and pictures.

I would like to say thank you to all the officers involved and the Children in Care Council for their hard work on this very important area of our service delivery. “
