This will involve assessment, support plan, monitoring and reviewing plans. They also work with Looked After Children, children on CP and statutory CiN Plans and individuals with mental health issues.

The team work with young people through their transition to adulthood. They manage their own safeguarding for children s Strategy Meeting/Discussion, S47 single and joint investigations, ICPC, RCPC, Safety Planning and when Children Become Looked After.

They also work with formal Mental Capacity Assessments and either co-work or primary work in adult assessment and plan - Care and Support Needs via Care Act 2014.
