Professionals from all agencies working with children and young people have shared responsibility to keep them safe and provide an effective, efficient and co-ordinated service to support their health and well-being.
Promoting children’s welfare is most effective when they receive help early and at a level according to their needs. The aim is to provide early interventions for children, young people and their families that require support in order to prevent them moving towards higher levels of need once these have been identified.
The Right Help Right Time guidance is for practitioners in all agencies working with children, young people and their families in Coventry. This guidance will assist professionals to identify the support that a child, young person or family might need and how best this support can be provided.
This guidance will never provide all the answers, nor will it ever take the place of talking to each other – or the exercise of sound professionals judgement and good communication.
The guidance can also be found in the CSCP Policy and Procedures manual.
Please book yourself on to one of a series of multi-agency workshops running throughout 2019/2020. These workshops will use case studies to help you to use the guidance to support your decision making in a way that increases professional confidence in managing risk and enables concerns about children to be addressed at the earliest possible stage. Please see details of the workshops.
