With an average career expectancy of eight years, increasing demand, budget pressures and unmanageable caseloads, these are challenging times for children’s services. A situation which is further compounded by an inspection regime that often results in negative press attention.
At Xyla Social and Health Care we firmly believe that getting the assessment right at the outset has a lasting impact upon the child and family’s lives and also upon the department as a whole, preventing ‘revolving door’ issues. This is why we only work with highly experienced social workers.
The solutions we provide are bespoke and led by social work delivery, to suit the specific needs of your organisation. We assemble experienced, managed teams who deliver high-quality work and exceptional outcomes in accordance with clear budgets and specifications.
Children in Need (CIN)
We have a flexible and effective model for delivering Children in Need (CIN) services. We have reviewed the circumstances, created bespoke plans for and managed the cases of hundreds of vulnerable children, young people and their families across local authorities, improving the outcomes in their lives.
Education, Health and Care Plans
We provide a dedicated model of support for the transition of statements to plans and beyond, ensuring that the Local Authorities which currently hold statements for children and young people in their area can provide timely EHC assessments and plans when required, thereby upholding their lawful duty to provide care and support needs and ensure outcomes are measured appropriately.
Referral and assessments
We handle referrals from MASH, completing Section 47 enquiries, producing child protection/children in need plans and dealing with initial court work when necessary. Our services aim to reduce internal workloads in your social work departments. We work effectively with all Local Authorities to guarantee an individual’s needs and priorities.
