A Care Plan is a very detailed plan about a your care arrangements. It is written by the social workers that are involved in your case. It explains arrangements for contact with family, plans for education and details of any foster placement 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. You have the right to have your 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.
