Referral and Assessment teams
This will be the first team you meet. Dealing with all new cases and working with children, families and young people for possibly up to four months, they will help you to understand the issues you face and plan with you what to do to resolve them.
An exception to this will be if it is immediately clear that another team will be involved in the longer term. An example would be, if a child needs longer term special help from one of our disabled children’s teams. If this is agreed a worker from one of those teams will quickly become involved.
