Care planning for looked after children

Effective care planning is a requirement of the Children Act 1989.

There are three major tasks in care planning. These are:

  • gathering information about the child / young person
  • drawing up a Care Plan which is about how best the child / young person can be looked after
  • reviewing the Care Plan regularly to ensure it continues to meet their care needs

The Care Plan must include considerations for the child’s / young person’s education, health, race, religion, language, culture, and contact with family and friends. The child / young person will be central to drawing up the Care Plan. The Social Worker, parents, carers, foster carers or residential worker may also be involved.

The Care Plan is normally drawn up before the child/young person becomes looked after. (In emergencies, an interim care plan is arranged).

When a child / young person becomes looked after we aim to provide:

  • a Care Plan, or Interim Care Plan
  • the first statutory review within 4 weeks
  • the second statutory review within 3 months
  • other statutory reviews in less than every 6 months until the child / young person is no longer looked after

Care planning will be seen as appropriate when a child or young person is:

  • looked after subject to a care order
  • accomodated by the local authority under Section 20 of the Children’s Act 1989 at the present request of the child or parent where no other person is able to provide suitable accomodation and care

Please contact the Social Services Department for further information - please see the contact details above.
