What is a Pre Proceedings Meeting?

This is a meeting convened by social workers when they are worried about the care of a child. The purpose of the meeting is to agree a plan with the parents and/or family members to try and prevent care proceedings being started.

What are Care Proceedings?

These are Court proceedings brought by the Local Authority to obtain court orders to protect children. The most common order applied for by the Local Authority is a Care Order which if granted gives the Local Authority parental responsibility for a child and so enables the Local Authority to remove a child from their parents.
