Protective Parenting Assessments

CF Social Work Assessments Service


Protective Parenting Assessments are predominantly used where child sexual abuse is prevalent.

These unique assessments provide a valuable insight into the protective capacity of the non abusing parent and highlight safeguarding concerns associated with lack of awareness, failure to accept responsibility, parental vulnerability and other issues that may prevent safe and protective care.

Experienced assessors provide an educative element to their work assisting the non abusing carer to raise their awareness regarding child sexual abuse and sexual offending behaviour. The assessor also examines the non abusing carers own value base and their insight into the specific needs of their child and or the child victims.

These assessments draw on research from the Lucy Faithful Foundation, Ray Wyre Associates and others to provide well informed evidence to inform care planning for children. Robust quality assurance and data protection procedures ensures client confidentiality at all times.
