Child safety concerns and 'Care proceedings'
Information to help and support young people
If people become worried that you are not being looked after properly or you may be at risk of harm, care proceedings could start.
If this happens the local authority need to make sure that you are safe. They will start what we call a 'care case'.
To help make things better, the local authority may need to ask a family court to help.
This short video gives a bit more information of what happens when we have been asked to help.
Children’s Rights (UNCRC) and the law about children
All children, no matter who they are or where they are from, have rights. Rights are things you should have as a person, like the right to an education or the right to life.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is an agreement between countries which sets out the rights that all children should have.
If you want to know more, you can watch this short video or visit the Children’s Rights Wales website.
