Triage and Early Help

18th January 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm GMT

There are 75,000 children and young people in Newham – more than a third of our residents are under 18 – and we want each of them to have the best possible start in life. We have a strong universal service in Newham – our schools, children’s centres and health services – but some of our children and young people need extra support and a few need a lot of help.

When families cannot cope by themselves, we have a duty to help. The role of Triage is to make decisions about level of need based on all the available information. The Early Help Framework in Newham encourages a consistent and systematic approach to effective early help for families that will secure better outcomes for children and young people.

Learning Outcomes
By the end of the session, participants will be:

  • Familiar with Newham’s online portal, to make a request for support or protection for a Newham child
  • Able to go through the Triage process – what happens to your request once it gets to Triage
  • Aware of how Triage makes decisions about Level of Need
  • Knowable of what happens next after Triage – and the potential support available for vulnerable children?
  • Understand the Early Help values and principles
  • Describe the process and practice for gaining consent with CYPF
  • Identify strengths and needs of children, young people and families and agree an action plan through applying a case study
  • Understand the use of the Early Help Record in the Step Down process
  • Reflect on your practice and set your own learning objectives
