Complex Needs (Children's Social Care)

The complex needs (children's social care) team carry out early help and child/family assessments to help us support families and identify appropriate family, universal or specialist support.

The complex needs (children's social care) team have a statutory obligation to safeguard children and young people with disabilities and undertake child in need, child protected and looked after children duties. 

If a child or young person, following assessment, is eligible for support from the team then a social care reviewing officer will support a family to devise a short break support plan. Sometimes, a payment - either a direct payment, or a personal budget - will be used to help families to access the support they need.
