This paper takes you step by step through the child protection procedure, examining the various legislation the social worker would be expected to know and use when working with vulnerable children. The paper also examines the processes the social worker has to go through in determining whether the children are children in need and therefore in need of support or if they are children at risk where possible removal of the children would be considered.

From the Paper:

"Both children and their parents are known to social services as both Stephen and Stephanie have been accommodated into the foster care system on several previous occasions due to their parent's long standing drug dependence, which has remained unchanged. At this point in my enquiries it would be imperative of me to attain any previous reading material that had been composed in relation to this families case in order to establish background knowledge regarding their history within the system, what contacts they have had and if they are currently receiving any support from social services or other agencies whom I may have to confer with to aid my enquiries.
