Helping families in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to find local childcare, services and activities
Children and young people’s Social Care services put the child’s needs first by supporting the family so that children and young people with SEND can continue to live at home. Social workers work alongside parents and other important people in the child’s life to make sure an agreed care plan is put in place and adhered to. The purpose of this plan is to meet the needs identified in the assessment. In many cases this will mean arranging for extra support for the parent, carer or the young person. This can include providing aids and adaptations, providing Direct Payments for the parent, carer or young person (over 16) to arrange their own support or respite (Short Breaks) with a foster carer or local specialist care provider.
