Where is the service located and what areas does it cover?

The services work all over the London Borough of Camden, supporting children, young people and their families in their homes and pre-school or educational settings. This includes all of Camden’s Children’s Centres, Health Centres, mainstream primary and secondary schools, and Camden’s special schools and resource bases.

Who does your service provide for?

The service is for any child or young person who has additional needs for which they require support to continue to develop.

How can a child or young person start using the service?

Children and young people are referred through the Single Point of Referral (SPOR).

How are decisions made about eligibility for your service?

All referrals are assessed in order to make a decision about which would be the most appropriate service/s for the child or young person to access, and the most complex referrals are discussed at a fortnightly panel of senior clinical staff who agree on the best route to assessment for the child/ young person.

How do you communicate with service users and how are they involved in decision making/planning?

Families are always given copies of written assessment reports, and the views and comments of parents and children/young people are included within these reports. As a Partnership we are working towards developing shared care plans, which join together the goals of all concerned into a single plan.

Is your service fully accessible?

Yes

What training have the staff supporting children and young people with SEND had/or will be they be getting?
