Children in Need teams

These teams will work with you if difficulties cannot be resolved in a shorter time. Sometimes issues will not be resolved within four months or it may be sensible to move to another team more quickly.

If this is the case a worker from one of the Children in Need teams will become the main person involved. A team of workers from different agencies may be involved because they agree a Child Protection Plan is needed. This may also be because a worker is involved for legal reasons (for example: private fostering, or a court being asked to decide what should happen next), or simply because social work is needed for longer to complete a plan.
