Re ISW / TAQ7 - Children in need assessment. 'Using valid and reliable sources, investigate and discuss the issues surrounding “hard to place” children and suggest a possible integrated service provision care plan'...
You are to discuss as an essay format (in approximately 1000 - 1500 words - Please see your grading deciphers to achieve a Pass / Merit / Distinction)) ‘Hard to Place Children’ which includes: sibling groups, minority groups, children over a particular age, children with physical and / or mental health difficulties, those children who can be labelled challenging and / or emotionally behaved, and children with SEN.
You are to offer, within your discussion, a possible integrated service provision care plan ….
An 'intergrated service provision care plan' is the organisation and management of services so that people get the care they need,
when they need it, in ways that are user-friendly, achievable and desired.
All children and young people who are looked after by Social Services Departments will have a Care Plan. This Plan is about how Social Services can best look after a child and make sure that everyone who has a responsibility for the child’s welfare knows what they have to do in order to make the plan work.
A Care Plan will include the following information:
• Why a child needs to be looked after
• Where a child will live while being looked after
• Any issues to do with race, language, religion or culture
• How will a child keep in touch with family and friends
Hope that helps
