Parenting assessment

A social work assessment of a parent’s ability and capacity to provide good enough care for their child. The assessment will usually look at the parent’s personal history, views and attitudes towards parenting, understanding of child development and a child’s needs, the resourcefulness of the parent to seek help and support and who forms their support network. The social worker will observe the parent with the child undertaking everyday tasks. This will then form the basis of a report with a recommendation to the court in care proceedings or a local authority decision about who should care long term for the child and what support a parent would require to care for their child.
