Specialist services.

Children's Support Worker

The role of the children’s support worker is to support all of the children and young people who reside within the service.

 

This entails completing a support plan with the child/ young person and their parent to ensure all their needs are identified and an action plan is developed.  The child will have their input into this process and a variety of tools to support children of all ages have their voices heard during the assessment process.

 

The children’s support worker organises weekly support sessions from the available projects and resources available to put together a planned package of support, which is regularly reviewed.

The role of the support worker is also to support the child or young person’s parent and support them in ways that are identified. For example, supporting parents to complete a transfer for school places or to attend local children centres, or to look at parenting support.  An outreach service is also provided to families who stay within the Warrington Area to continue to support children and their parents once within their new home.
