Slough Children First has undertaken an exciting and challenging project to transform the way we support children and families in and around Slough.
We have redesigned the service offered to children and young people by moving away from conventional social work teams to smaller teams made up of professionals from different disciplines.
This new way of working is called Safe, Secure and Successful. Our aim is to ensure children, young people and families experience a more complete and responsive service to address some of their most common concerns.
This model – looking at everyone involved in a child’s life – is helping is to identify issues at an earlier stage. We can offer or signpost to appropriate help or interventions, so that we can concentrate our efforts and resources on those who need them most. It’s effective and it’s working.
