The needs of the child
In order to give the child the best support, it is important you work with us and the child’s parents to make sure the child feels safe and well cared for.
It is important to find out about the child’s education, health and religious beliefs. As well as everyday things such as their favorite foods, hobbies or any groups they attend. This information will help you to keep continuity in the child’s life.
