-to provide an assessment of the needs of family members, their strengths and any risks to children's health/development or significant harm to the child/ren and develop SMART plans that will meet the needs of family members and reduce risks to children, in conjunction with children and their families and in the most complex cases -to work with partners to meet those needs and monitor progress via child in need and core group meetings involving families, young people and relevant professionals
-to chair reviews of children in need cases, strategy discussions, permanency planning meetings and professional's meetings on complex cases -to conduct complex child protection investigations where a multi-agency strategy discussion considers there are grounds to believe the child has or is likely to suffer significant harm and to involve families in developing plans for change which will reduce the risk of significant harm and keep children in their families wherever possible.
