This team provides assessment and support to children subject to a Child Protection Plan, children in care proceedings, and children in high levels of need.

The service aims to work with Children in Need and their families and other agencies where there is a high level of need and the provision of a social work service is essential to enable the children to attain or maintain a reasonable level of development. This will include safeguarding services and work with families who are the subject of care proceedings.

The service works to improve workers' skills in identifying disorganised attachment in children. Research has found that 85%+ children with disorganised attachment patterns have suffered maltreatment. Therefore the accurate recognition of disorganised attachment patterns has the potential to enormously increase the effectiveness of CSC in identifying those children who have suffered harm, so that we can focus resources appropriately on supporting these families and protecting these children.
