What is likely to happen?

Question:
What is likely to happen?
Answer:
  • The social worker and/or police officer involved will tell you about the concerns that have been reported about your child. It may not be possible to tell you who reported these concerns.

  • The social worker and/or police officer involved will need to talk to your child and any other children in your household. These interviews may be video recorded. This is to make sure that your child/ren is/are not questioned too many times. The video is then stored in a safe place by the police officer.

  • Where it has been suggested that someone has caused harm to your child/ren you are likely to be spoken to by a social worker and a police officer.

  • If you are able to talk openly with the people involved about the concerns the best decisions will be made for your child.
