Assessment and Intervention Team
The assessment and intervention teams (A&I) are the gateway by which children, young people, parents and carers, and other agencies gain access to the Children and Families services of the council. The aim of the assessment and intervention team is to undertake incoming assessment and short-term intervention work with families.
Assessment and intervention teams work in a focused way with those children in need (CIN) and their families offering three months intervention. They also deal with section 47 child protection enquiries and work jointly with the police and other partners in assessing immediate risk for children that come to our attention. They transfer cases into longer term teams should families require longer term intervention or the children become subject to a child protection plan or come into care of the local authority.
