New team joins up children's services

Published Thursday, 11 October 2012

A team of dedicated experts is working in the Enfield Civic Centre to share and assess information in cases of early intervention and child protection.

This is Enfield’s Single Point of Entry bringing together police, health, children’s social care, parent support, education welfare, probation and domestic violence teams.

Cllr Ayfer Orhan, cabinet member for children and young people, said, “It makes sense for the professionals who need to share and assess information to work together.

“This new service will help other professionals to refer cases when they consider a child, young person or family needs a service.  It provides a single point of contact, joined up assessment and equally a joined up response.  It is a ‘front door’ to our services for children, young people and families to ensure we get things right first time.”
