Purpose

​This chapter provides information on how we:  

  • determine whether or not we have a role and if action should be taken to safeguard or promote a child's wellbeing
  • conduct a safety and wellbeing assessment to ascertain the current circumstances of a child and family in relation to risk, harm, future danger, safety, wellbeing and protective concerns, and
  • decide whether we should take action to safeguard or promote a child's wellbeing under the Children and Community Services Act 2004, and whether a child may be in need of protection.
