Child safety concerns and 'Care proceedings'

Child safety concerns and 'Care proceedings'

For children
Sometimes people who know you can be very worried that you are not being looked after properly or you may be at risk of being hurt.
For young people
If people become worried that you are not being looked after properly or you may be at risk of harm, care proceedings could start.
For adults
'Care’ or ‘Supervision’ proceedings are where a Local Authority has applied to the family court to protect a child when there are serious concerns about a child’s safety or welfare.
