The Children Act 1989 made it clear that agencies and workers should aim to work in partnership with family members in all child care cases. Practice across the country has been varied, especially with respect to family involvement in child protection conferences, and there has also been inter-professional debate about its desirability. This research examines the issues of participation of the different family members in the various aspects of child protection work from many angles.
