The ultimate aim of the service is to reduce the numbers of children and young people requiring more intensive and more costly interventions through children’s social care and other crisis led services, by providing timely and effective responses that prevent difficulties escalating.
Our vision is that families in North Yorkshire are able to access readily a range of support to ensure that their children are safe, happy and well, and that they can flourish at school and in the wider world.
Our children and families prevention service brings together a range of preventative work previously undertaken by separate services. The service:
- operates seamlessly throughout the 0-19 age range;
- eliminates duplication, unnecessary and unhelpful transitions for families;
- provides early help in a more targeted way to children, young people and families; and
- is co-located with the healthy child teams (5-19).
