Assessment team

Comprehensive child and family assessments are undertaken by one of our five assessment teams.

Our assessment teams are led by a team manager, with six qualified social workers. One of these social workers may be newly qualified. 

We promote joint working. This is to share risk assessment and enable different perspectives on each family while providing intervention as early as possible during the assessment.  With strong links to partners in early help and universal service, the outcome is the right service at the right time.
