dc.descriptionThis demonstration practice project examines professionals’ perceptions of parental participation in child protection conferences following the introduction of ‘Children First’ in the Midland Health Board. The methodology used to undertake this small study is research questions for completion by a sample of professionals invited to attend eight child protection conferences in a two-month period in the first half of 2003. The findings suggest that while professionals are in favour of parental participation in child protection conferences, there are difficulties for their participation. They include not showing their reports to the parent before the conference, not discussing all of their concerns in the conference and, professionals’ views that parents do not participate in decision-making. The researcher queries if child protection conferences are consistent in their attempt to ensure that parents fully participate and are involved in the decision-making process. Additionally, it was noted that general practitioners did not attend a majority of conferences surveyed. The researcher concludes by making some recommendations.en
