You are here:
< All Topics

A Care Plan is a very detailed plan about a child’s care arrangements written by the social workers that are involved in the child’s case. It explains arrangements for contact with family, plans for education and details of any foster or residential placement.

A Care Plan will be made within the first two weeks of a Care Order being issued and will be reviewed regularly. The child has the right to have their wishes and feelings expressed at these review meetings and to be informed of the main points of discussion.  These review meetings are referred to as Looked After Child (LAC) Review meetings.
