Effective support for Children, Young People and Families - Safeguarding and Early Help
From 1 September our Early Help Service - Tel: (01482) 391700 and Safeguarding Hub (formerly EHASH) - Tel: (01482) 395500 will each offer you the opportunity to talk to a practitioner about your concerns and discuss the most appropriate way forward.
Further details of how to access this new offer can be found in the Safeguarding Partnership August newsletter – Partnership Matters: http://www.erscb.org.uk/news-coronavirus/newsletter/.
The conversations in these consultations will be underpinned by the Effective Support Guidance http://www.erscb.org.uk/. This guidance sets out the criteria for accessing services, from universal services, through additional support, targeted support and specialist services. A programme of virtual training events has started to support the introduction of this guidance, details of which can be found in the August edition of the ERSCP newsletter – Partnership Matters: http://www.erscb.org.uk/news-coronavirus/newsletter/.
Making a referral
If, in line with the Effective Support Guidance, it is appropriate to refer a child/family for Early Help Services or for a social work assessment then a revised Request for Service Form will need to be completed http://www.erscb.org.uk/.
However, where there is a concern of significant harm that may need an urgent response then you will find, after ringing the Safeguarding Hub number (01482) 395500 an option to be put straight through to a social worker to discuss this concern. This option will provide a way to prioritise those concerns which need urgent attention. We will need your help in ensuring that this option is reserved for such circumstances.
