Contingency Plan

All plans for children should include a Contingency Plan setting out the steps that need to be taken if the primary objectives are not achieved.

As part of permanence planning for Looked After Children, Contingency Plans must be drawn up to ensure that alternative plans have been explored and are available without delay if the preferred permanent outcome proves unachievable. This is sometimes referred to as 'Twin Track' or 'Parallel' Planning.
