What is a Child Protection Review Conference?

A Child Protection Review Conference should be held within three months of the Initial Conference and thereafter at maximum intervals of six months. The purpose is to review whether the child is continuing to suffer or is likely to suffer significant harm and consider whether the Child Protection Plan should continue or should be changed. The Social Worker and Manager should decide whether to initiate family Court proceedings if the child is considered to be suffering significant harm. In these circumstances there may be a recommendation for the Social Worker to seek a Legal Planning Meeting.
