5.10 Absence of Parents and/or Children

If parents and/or children do not wish to attend the conference they must be provided with full opportunities to contribute their views. The social worker must facilitate this by:

  • Exploring the use of an advocate or supporter to attend on behalf of the parent or child;
  • Enabling the child or parent to write, or tape, or use drawings to represent their views;
  • Agreeing that the social worker, or any other professional, expresses their views.
