Children and family wellbeing service proposal approved

A revised proposal to change the way the children and family wellbeing (CFW) service is delivered was agreed by the county council's cabinet on Thursday 8 November.

In June 2018 we consulted with people supported by the council and partners on a proposal to reduce the number of buildings used to deliver the service and work within the community in a more flexible way.

This will not affect the current SEND offer delivered by the CFW service, except for at Ashton Young People's Centre where the existing group will be transferred to Riverbank Children's Centre.

1-1 family support for families with children and young people identified as having SEND normally takes place in the family home. The proposal would also not affect the linked SEND offer of Free Early Education entitlement to children aged 2 - 4 which some educational establishments provide.

The recommendations will be implemented between November 2018 and March 2019. We will keep you updated on progress.
