This guide to good practice is intended to encourage adults who are making decisions about children’s and young people’s care to work with them on those decisions. This is not just about children’s rights, though that is clear, but about making good decisions. Good decisions are not absolute and we do not have perfect foresight so we will make mistakes. However good decisions are as much about the way we do it and the impressions we leave, as the decision itself.
