Specialist social work teams support children with permanent and substantial disabilities / complex health needs and their families. These teams offer support and assessment of need, as well as providing the full range of statutory childcare duties. The primary aim of the teams is to provide supportive care packages based on the assessed needs of the child and family, including the needs of carers and siblings. In doing this the teams work closely with the child/young person and the family as well as a range of other workers from the statutory and voluntary sector where this is required.
