A decision may have been made that a child does not require a child protection plan but he or she may nonetheless require services to promote his or her health or development. In these circumstances, the conference together with the family should consider the child’s needs and what further help would assist the family in responding to them. Subject to the family’s views and consent, it may be appropriate to continue and to complete the core assessment to help determine what support might best help promote the child’s welfare. Where the child’s needs are complex, inter-agency working will continue to be important. Where appropriate, a child in need plan should be drawn up and reviewed at regular intervals – no less frequent than every six months (see paragraphs 4.33 and 4.36 of the Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families).
