Child Protection

Has your social worker told you that there will be a case conference and that they are asking for your family to be placed on child protection?

Did you know you can have advice about this, and even have a solicitor attend the conference with you?

For those on a low income or certain benefits this may be free under legal aid. If this is the case for you contact Lisa and she will put you in touch with someone who can help.

If you don't meet the requirements for legal aid Lisa can talk you through your options.
