Your local support team
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.
You can find the teams' contact details at the bottom of this page.
