Child welfare services will attend the dialogue process along with private parties in order to ensure a better understanding of each other’s situation and to improve communication. Child welfare services will then have the opportunity to hear the views of the private parties, and together with the parents or young person, they can try to find good solutions that are in the best interests of the child.

Like the private parties, child welfare services must agree to a dialogue process. Their presence is also voluntary. Those who attend from child welfare services must be authorised to enter into agreements with the private parties. Child welfare services may withdraw their consent at any time during the dialogue process, also during attempts to find temporary arrangements.
