  • Undertake, where possible, joint risk assessments & care planning
  • Share details of care plans and risk assessments

10 Principles cont.
  • Ensure agencies have sufficient notice to attend meetings and requests for joint visits where possible
  • Plan joint visits in advance with other professionals & agree what you want to achieve
  • Significant changes in circumstances relating to either a child or parent should be communicated to each agency, all involved professionals and plans agreed together
  • Discuss concerns relating to plans with Safeguarding Children Team/Named Professionals in adult mental health services
  • If concerned about decisions of another agency discuss with your line manager and if necessary continue to escalate until a satisfactory conclusion has been reached
