Question and answer
3.3 2.4 Describe the roles and responsibilities of the different organisations that may be involved when a child or young person has been abused or harmed.
First and foremost, the child must be protected from further abuse. [ Social Services will need to be involved to find out: what has happened if it is likely to happen again what steps are needed to protect the child. Child Protection After investigation, Social Services may be satisfied that the problems have been sorted out, and that the parents can now care for and protect the
child properly. If so, they will remain involved only if the family wants their help. If Social Services are concerned that a child is being harmed, they will arrange a child protection case conference. The parents and professionals who know the child will be invited. A plan will be made to help the child and family and ensure that there is no further harm. Help to look after the child When a child has been abused within the family, the person involved is sometimes able to own up to what they have done and wants help. They can then be helped to look after their child better. Occasionally, the child may have to be taken away from the abusing adult because the risks of physical and emotional harm are too great. This can be for a short time, until things become safer, or may be permanent. Specialist treatment Many children need specialist treatment because of the abuse they have endured. Some receive help from family centres run by social services. If they are worried, depressed or being very difficult, the child and family might need help from the local child and adolescent mental health service. These specialists may work with the whole family, or with children and adolescents alone. Sometimes they work with teenagers in groups. Individual therapy can be especially helpful for children who have been sexually abused, or who have experienced severe trauma. Children who have suffered serious abuse or neglect can be difficult to care for, and the service can offer help and advice to parents and carers. ]
