Every family is unique, but in all families problems can arise from time to time. Sometimes these difficulties can be solved within the family, with additional support from extended family and friends, but on other occasions through additional support, advice and resources from other agencies.

Family conferences are used to make plans for children in a number of different contexts:

  • Child welfare
  • Education welfare
  • Child protection
  • Looked After Children
  • Youth offending
  • Education welfare
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Domestic violence
  • Children as young carers
  • Breakdown of fostering or adoptive placements

Good practice examples
