Graded Care Profile 2 (GCP2) is an evidence-based assessment tool licenced by the NSPCC. The tool is used for measuring the quality of care provided by a parent or carer in meeting their child’s needs.
The tool was developed to address the following issues in regard to neglect:
1.Practitioners have difficulty in assessing neglect
2.Assessing neglect can be subjective – often relating to a practitioners experience or perceptions of neglect – GCP2 aims to be more objective
3.It’s easier to recognise neglect at the high end but even with those cases evidence is needed for court orders
4.Neglect has a high threshold for recognition and an issue with LAG – which refers to the delay between when neglect starts and when it is possible to perceive the impact of neglect
5.Neglect is a complex issue so there is no simple solution to it. But it is the number one reason for children being placed on a child protection plan. GCP2 is not a 5 minute checklist but a detailed tool that can respond effectively to a complex area.
