This guide is written to help local authorities, during the crisis, to work in partnership with families in their localities
to make workable plans for vulnerable children and adults who are struggling or are at risk. It is more important than
ever, when local authority and court resources are so overstretched, that we are able to draw upon the knowledge and
capacity of the family and community network, to safeguard and support children and adults.

This guide has been written for family group conference practitioners and managers and local authority decision
makers. Families involved with the child welfare or family justice system may find it helpful in considering whether
they wish to ask their local authority for a family group conference or go ahead with a family group conference to help
address a serious concern or challenge.
