Looked after children and disability services

Looked after children services provide help and support. This includes a range of statutory duties for children and young people in care. Helping them to move towards permanency for those leaving care.

The service is made up of:

  • Social workers
     
  • Personal advisors
     
  • Family support workers

They keep in regular contact with looked after children. They make sure they have up-to-date care plans. These workers link with the local support teams and safeguarding units.


 

Children's disability teams

These provide a complete service to children with a disability, including:

  • Short breaks
     
  • Direct payments
     
  • Looked after children's services

Some social work staff are based within the local support teams to provide:

  • Early intervention support
     
  • Access to short breaks services

This is in line with the principles of Families First.
