Your local support team

Co-ordinated support

A local support team is a team of children's service professionals. We work with children, young people and families living within a particular area. You may have worked with a member of a local support team in the past.

Our work is focused on meeting additional targeted, non-social work needs, predominantly level 3.


 

How do I get help from my local support team?

Please see the getting access to support page.


 

What do you do?

We will:

  • Meet the needs of children and families as early as possible and prevent them from getting worse.
  • Be a single local point of contact for accessing targeted support services.
  • Provide a coordinated response to meeting the needs of pupils.
  • Work with children and families in 4 main ways:








 

    • Consultation and advice

    • Individual case work

    • Group and family work

    • Whole school work.
