Can someone please tell me after a core group meeting does the parents get a report of what is decided?

Hi Basil

The core group meeting should be minuted by the social worker, and a copy of this sent out to all members. The minutes contain a written record of the child protection plan, current concerns, expectations, how each agency will support you with clear timescales for those changes to take place. It allows not only the family, but the agencies to have a shared understanding of their involvement with you.

If you have not received the minutes within one week of the meeting, it would be advisable to contact the social worker or team manager to request these are sent to you. This allows you to have a clear understanding of what is in the plan, and what needs to happen before the next meeting.

Best Wishes

I've been to about fifteen core group meetings while my son has been on child protection and child in need plans; I've never seen any minutes despite asking for them. The family court is asking the LA to provide minutes of core group meetings I can't wait to hear their excuses for not being able to.
