Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi thank you for your enquiry and your patience. I am afraid because of the career that you are in it is important to disclose any issues that might if established put into question your ability to deal with other people's issues. An initial child protection conference is convened following a Section 47 enquiry to safeguard and promote the welfare of a child who is suspected of, or likely to be, suffering significant harm. Now this is what as a social worker you would be organising for other families. It would therefore be in your interests to check with the senior social worker who has called for the conference if they consider at this early stage whether you should declare. It is best to be safe than to not disclose and be accused of putting other people's children in danger. I hope this is useful to you and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience. All the best
