Child's plan

A personalised child’s plan will be available when a child needs a range of extra support planned, delivered and co-ordinated.

This will explain what should improve for the child, the actions to be taken and why the plan has been created.

The child's plan is managed by a 'lead professional': someone with the right skills and experience to make sure the plan is managed properly. Depending on the situation and the child's needs, the lead professional may also be their named person.

The child and parent(s) will know what information is being shared, with whom and for what purpose, and their views will be taken into account. This may not happen in exceptional cases, such as where there is a concern for the safety of a child or someone else.
