Support provided under Section 20

As a child in need, we can provide you with a range of services, including:

  • advice and guidance
  • support to develop independence
  • a medical assessment
  • support in accessing education and employment options
  • financial assistance
  • accommodation. 

Reviewing your support

Your child in need plan will be reviewed at 3 months, and then 6 months after. 

Your social worker will visit at least once a week for the first 4 weeks. They will then visit once every 6 weeks after that. 

An education planning meeting called a PEP will take place once a term with you and your education provider or employer has been completed.
