CF Social Work has worked closely within the Public Law Outline Framework since its infancy and is familiar with the Revised Agenda (26-week rule) in child care proceedings. We have assisted many LA’s to complete a substantial number of Connected People Assessments ensuring that the case remains on the ‘standard’ track and within the 26 week deadline. Our Connected People Assessments pay close attention to the often-contentious issue of contact and the nature of the child’s and the carer's past and future relationship with the birth parent. Our assessment involves family members to help develop a viable kinship care arrangement and provides a comprehensive final report to allow the child to remain in their family of origin or friend network whilst further planning and assessment takes place. We have a strong track record of completing all assessment work on time.
