It begins with a discussion of how the policies and priorities which have shaped the system have developed over time and traces the ways in which policy has sought to balance the continuing tension at the heart of state intervention in family life, that is, the need to balance the needs and rights of children and the rights of parents. The chapter outlines the legal and institutional frameworks that underpin child protection activity today and examines the key policy principles that govern practice, including partnership with parents, the need to ensure stability and permanence for children removed from their parents and the associated need to avoid delay in decision-making.
