Our Middlesbrough Solicitor for Child Protection explains;-
Yes. Parents, carers and children are entitled to have a Solicitor present with them at a Child Protection Conference. The role of a Solicitor at a CPC is as an advisor and to offer support to the client. However, in some circumstances where the client does not feel able, the Solicitor may be able to speak on their behalf.
Involvement with Social Services can be a very worrying time and you might have been told that you do not need a solicitor. It is very important that you do seek independent legal advice before agreeing to a working agreement or placement. We offer free no obligation initial appointments to everyone and during that appointment we will assess you for legal aid.
