Working With Emerging Needs
Early Help is a way of working with families which has a process. Practitioners need to know how to identify emerging needs and assess the level of support required for the family. All practitioners that work with families should record the presenting issues, the assessed level of need and what action is taken.
This short course will introduce practitioners to what emerging needs can look like, how this can be identified and assessed against the thresholds document. The course also covers what types of support could be offered to support families and who else may be able to support.
By the end of the day delegates will:
• Be able to identify the emerging needs of children, young people and families using the Waltham Forest thresholds
• Apply strength-based practice in work with families
• Requesting Help, Support and Protection from the Local Authority
• Feel more confident working within the early help process.
