Neglect is the most common reason why children are placed on a child protection plan, both locally and nationally.

The Graded Care Profile 2(GCP2) is an evidence based practical tool that will be introduced in Wiltshire from January 2018.

The roll out and implementation of GCP2 is a long-term project, with the first phase scheduled to begin in January 2019. The expectation is that this a multi-agency tool; for staff across all agencies working with children and their families to use.

GCP2 helps professionals measure the quality of care being given to a child and as an assessment tool can help professionals spot anything that is putting a child at risk of harm. It also supports the engagement of parents by identifying strengths and needs and helps to target key areas to work on. The tool also helps to understand parent’s capacity to change.

You can find more information about the tool at NSPCC GCP2.
