Guidance and Support...

 

What is the Guidance and Support team?

The Guidance and Support team has been set up to support children and families in the Inner East.

If your child/family needs extra support, we try to find the best way to do this as quickly as possible.

We meet regularly and discuss cases (with your consent) so that we can provide a co-ordinated package of support to help improve your situation.

 

Members of the panel may include:

Adult and Child Health Services, Anti-Social Behaviour Team, CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services), Children’s Centres, Children’s Social Work Services, Cluster Team, IGEN, Police, Schools, Targeted Services, Voluntary Organisations, Youth Offending Services and Youth Services.

 

After the meeting

The person who requested support from us on your behalf will tell you what will happen next.

 

If you feel that your family would benefit from the support of the Guidance and Support team, please contact your child’s school who will be able to make a referral on your behalf.
