Your local support team

Co-ordinated support

A local support team is a team of children's service professionals who work with children, young people and families living within a particular geographical area.

You may have worked with a member of a local support team in the past.

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

You can find a list of teams and contact details at the bottom of this page.
