Caring for Children

Locality teams

The focus of these teams is about being involved, or helping other agencies to get involved, before problems reach a stage where social work teams need to intervene or offer services.

The teams include the education welfare workers who will become involved if children and young people are not attending school for some reason.

They also include workers who help all other agencies use the ‘Common Assessment Framework’ – which is a way of agreeing early on what help children, young people and families in any circumstance may need. These workers also offer help to families directly.
