Child protection is preventive child protection, child- and family-oriented protection. Child protection includes finding out the need for child protection, non-institutional support, urgent placement and taking into care. Fostercare and aftercare are connected with child protection actions.
Anyone who is concerned for a child's or a family's situation, can contact a social worker. A parent can contact a social worker if he or she feels the need for help because of fatigue. A child can contact a social worker if he or she feels unsafe and needs help because of intoxicant abuse by the parents. Officials have a duty to report if, in course of their duties, they have found out about a child whose situation requires finding out if there is a need for child protection.
