Description

Service Description

Family Group Conferences can be used in any serious situation where a plan and decision needs to be made about a vulnerable adult or child.

Family group conferences are mainly used in child welfare, particularly when a child is at risk of going into care, and other areas such as, using the approach to prevent school exclusions, tackle anti-social behaviour, address youth offending and in planning for vulnerable adults.

Families, including extended family members are assisted by an independent family group conference coordinator to prepare for the meeting. At the first part of the meeting, social workers and other professionals set out their concerns and what support could be made available. In the second part of the meeting family members then meet on their own to make a plan for the child.

Additional Information

Additional Information

A Family Group Conference is a process led by family members to plan and make decisions for a child who is at risk. Children and young people are normally involved in their own family group conference, although often with support from an advocate. It is a voluntary process and families cannot be forced to have a family group conference.
