Summary The Graded Care Profile 2 (GCP2) is a tool to support practitioners to work with families with a strengths-based approach.  It helps professionals measure the quality of care provided by a parent or carer in meeting their child’s needs, particularly where there are concerns about neglect.

Using the GCP2 assessment tool, professionals score aspects of family life on a scale of one to five. This assessment helps them identify areas where the level of care children receive could be significantly improved.
