The Safeguarding and Family Support Service responds to urgent Priority 1 and 2 child protection referrals. Everything they do is geared towards keeping children and young people safe from the risk of significant harm. They gather information and assess and prioritise all decisions about the most appropriate response under S47 of the Children Act.
The service works to secure permanency within the family, either in the community or through court processes. The most vital aspect of their work is to help make the child’s journey as smooth and safe as possible, whether that’s through PLO, court, adoption and post adoption and to prevent a ‘cycle’ of being in and out of care.
