The child's journey

  • I understand that the needs and wishes of the child are paramount and influence all my actions and decisions
  • I understand that children and families need timely support
  • I understand that the child needs stable and secure relationships with adults
  • I have read, heard about, and understood the child’s history and what they have experienced
  • I understand the impact that adversity can have on children and I have identified a clear direction of travel
  • I know what the outcomes for the child will look like
  • I am committed to achieving stability and security for the child as early as possible
