Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families
This pack, which accompanies the Framework for the Assessment of Children in Need and their Families (2000), sets out how a number of questionnaires and scales
can be used by social work and other social services staff when assessing children and their families. The materials were piloted in a number of child care situations within
five social service departments and modified to suit children and families and the requirements of staff working in this setting. The instruments can assist staff preparing
reports for the Court, by providing a clear evidence base for the judgements and recommendations made regarding a child, and inform the child care plan.
