Children in Need Team

Children in Need team offer a social work service to families where children are deemed to be 'in need' as defined by section 17 of the Children Act 1989. They work predominantly with:

  • Children whose names are on the child protection register.
  • Children deemed to be in need of family support services due to an assessed level of need.
  • Children with a disability that is not deemed to be 'severe and profound' - the latter are referred to the Children with Disability Team.

Social workers will assess family needs and draw up a family support package with parents to enable children to be safely and effectively cared for within their families.
