6.4 Reassessment of Safety and Risk
Policy dictates mandatory points in time when a formal Safety Assessment (CD-17) must be completed; however the assessment of child safety is ongoing, throughout the life of the case. Anytime household conditions or composition change that might affect child safety, a CD-17 will be completed.
A Risk Reassessment (CS-16E) Risk Reassessment is due at the time of case reassessment. In some cases SDM risk level may be reduced effecting minimum contact standards, but in some cases, circumstances may change that may not threaten immediate safety but increase the risk level. Minimum contact standards should be adjusted accordingly to the current risk level. If a safety plan is in place it is possible the terms of a safety plan may require more frequent contact.
