In response to poor performance in this practice area in 2014/15, it was agreed to develop an internal action plan. The Child Protection Coordinator had lead responsibility for improving the timeliness on case conferences. A number of actions were completed including:
- Attending team meetings to remind staff of the timescales within the All Wales Child Protection Procedures
- Delivering workshops to multi agencies around the conference process
- Quality assuring all requests for an initial case conference to ensure that issues around timeliness were addressed.
This year’s total of 289 out of 289 reviews of Children on the Child Protection Register took place within the statutory timescales. The outturn of 100% is above the locally agreed target (98.0%)
