Aims of ISK – what are we trying to achieve?
•
Improve access to multi-agency services
•
Enable services to work together better
•
Establish protocols for early intervention and co-ordination of
provision
•
Improve services through effective participation
•
Improve quality and quantity of service provision
•
Complement other initiatives
•
Provide a “one stop” access model.
How does the CAF fit in?
•
Youth Matters vision for tackling complex additional needs through
targeted youth support:
– Early identification (CAF)
– Simple processes (one story, told once)
– Effective co-ordination (lead professional)
– Safe and accessible settings (locality focus, driven by young people)
– Swift and easy referral (extended services agenda).
– We see the CAF as more than a form – it is a vehicle for change
and multi agency working, and it can influence the design of
services.
Why we chose Kirkby
•
Higher than average rates of teenage pregnancy
•
Higher than average rates of permanent exclusion
•
Higher than average rates of truancy
•
Higher than average eligibility and take up for free school meals
•
Lower than average attainment at Key Stages 3 and 4.
•
Kirkby was also one of our CAF Pilot Projects
Findings – what were the emerging themes?
•
Work to strengths and recognise current good practice
•
Improved communication and shared language
•
Increase awareness of the network of people who share the same
concerns
•
Find solutions not more problems
•
Make progress with some quick wins
•
Find a local model for working which builds trust and encourages
sharing
•
Recognise that this is a continuum.
The Virtual Team Model
Aligned Services
Core Services
Core Group
Coordination of CAF
The model in detail:
•
“Wrap around” services with the child/young person at the centre
•
Based around the family of schools
•
Operates within service boundaries, maximising skills, knowledge and
experience without major structural change
•
Effective mix of prevention and intervention
•
Focus on early identification
•
Driven by a partnership of children, young people, families and
practitioners
•
The model will drive the coordination of the CAF.
Why the CAF and ISK are mutually beneficial:
•
The model relies on universal commitment, particularly to needs
assessment
•
The Core Group’s coordinating role will ensure that the CAF is
coordinated at the point closest to delivery
•
Using the families of schools model will provide a model which can be
replicated – vital for roll out of the CAF in a large authority.
•
Discussion about the CAF has been the catalyst for much of the work of
ISK – it’s a good vehicle for promoting change
•
We’ve been able to use the project to win hearts and minds at a critical
time.
