Child Protection Conferences: Ensuring the Safety and Well-being of Children

Child Protection is a paramount concern for societies worldwide. In the United Kingdom, the safeguarding of children is taken very seriously, and Child Protection Conferences (CPCs) play a pivotal role in this endeavor. United Solicitors recognizes the significance of CPCs in ensuring the safety and well-being of children, and is committed to providing comprehensive legal support to families navigating these complex processes.

What are Child Protection Conferences?

Child Protection Conferences are multi-agency meetings convened by local authorities when there are concerns about a child’s safety or welfare. These concerns may arise due to various reasons such as neglect, physical or emotional abuse, exposure to domestic violence, substance misuse within the family, or parental incapacity.

The Purpose of Child Protection Conferences:

The primary purpose of CPCs is to assess the risks to a child and determine the most appropriate course of action to safeguard their welfare. This involves gathering information from various professionals involved with the child and their family, such as social workers, healthcare providers, teachers, and the police. The conference aims to develop a Child Protection Plan tailored to the specific needs of the child and family, outlining interventions and support services required to mitigate risks and promote the child’s safety and well-being.

The Purpose of Child Protection Conferences:

United Solicitors recognizes the sensitive and challenging nature of Child Protection Conferences and the impact they can have on families. Our experienced team of solicitors specializes in family law and child protection matters, providing expert legal representation and support to families involved in CPCs.

Our Approach:

We understand that families involved in CPCs may feel overwhelmed and vulnerable. Our solicitors provide compassionate and empathetic legal representation, ensuring that the voices of parents and children are heard throughout the conference process.

Prior to the conference, our solicitors work closely with clients to understand their concerns, gather relevant evidence, and prepare them for the proceedings. During the conference, we advocate vigorously on behalf of our clients, challenging any inaccuracies or misconceptions and ensuring that decisions are made in the best interests of the child.

We recognize the importance of collaboration with other professionals involved in child protection, such as social workers and healthcare professionals. Our solicitors liaise effectively with these stakeholders, advocating for appropriate support services and interventions to be included in the Child Protection Plan.

In cases where families are dissatisfied with the outcome of a CPC, our solicitors provide guidance on the options available, including the possibility of appealing decisions or seeking a review of the Child Protection Plan.


Child Protection Conferences are crucial forums for assessing and addressing concerns about a child’s safety and well-being. United Solicitors is dedicated to providing expert legal support to families navigating these complex processes, ensuring that their rights are upheld, and the best interests of the child are paramount throughout. With our compassionate approach and expertise in family law, we strive to achieve positive outcomes for the families we represent.
