If eligibility criteria is met...
Once an assessment is complete, the service provider will discuss options with you to provide ongoing support or how to address any current difficulties.
If a child or young person needs help from more than one service, they may ask for your permission to discuss your needs together. You can also request that services supporting you/your child meet up to discuss issues and work with you to come up with one joined-up support plan.
This is called Multi-Agency working. It saves time and ensures that all support needs are addressed, that services aren’t duplicating provision nor pulling in opposite directions.
If eligibility criteria is not met...
The assessing service should provide you with alternative sources of support.
If you are unhappy with or are unclear about the outcome of an assessment you should discuss this firstly with the person who has carried out the assessment. Should you still be unhappy, you can ask to speak with their line manager.
