Contextual Case Consultations

Screening

Managing cases of extra-familial risk can often be complex, requiring practitioners to work with new partners or develop interventions that may appear unfamiliar to them. While practitioners are often familiar with, and comfortable developing intervention plans that work with families, developing contextual safeguarding approaches may require additional support. To support practitioners, it is important that they are provided with opportunities to reflect on cases with others and have support to consider different factors across contexts beyond the home. This case consultation guidance, outlines the process of case consultation as used In Hackney, and can be used as a template for authorities to develop their own case consultation process.
