Needs Code February 2017


Models of multi-agency

Models of multi-agency working 12.21 Local authorities and other services already deliver multi-agency support that utilises the ethos of putting the child or family at the centre of decisions. One such example is the Families First Programme. These multiagency models of working focus on the needs of the child and/or family, bringing together a range of services, which is often referred to as multiagency working, to ensure there is effective early assessment to identify needs and to consider the most appropriate way/s to address them in and integrated and holistic way. 12.22 Where a child or young person is part of these programmes and they have an IDP, it may be beneficial to share it with the relevant agencies. Specialist Services/external agencies 12.23 Staff from schools and FEIs should work with, and alongside, specialist professionals. ALNCos will provide a great deal of expertise, they may however determine that further advice and input from specialist professionals is required. The ALNCo should be the co-ordinator to ensure professionals are consulted, advice is acted upon and where there are opposing views, advice or concerns these are taken into account. 12.24 Specialist services may be required in the initial determination of the child’s or young person’s needs and how to meet those needs or where it is determined that further expertise is required having tried other interventions. It may be appropriate to refer to a specialist service when the needs of the child or young person requires input or advice which is beyond the ability of schools or FEIs to provide, or additional advice/ consultation/assessment/intervention is thought to be needed because the child or young person is not making progress as expected despite appropriate school or FEI based intervention. 12.25 Some of the most common agencies and services in relation to ALN are found in Annex C. Statutory requests by local authorities for help or for information from other public bodies 12.26 Local authorities may request information or help from other bodies, which it requires for the purpose of exercising its functions under the Act. 163 12.27 These bodies/persons are: another local authority; a local authority in England; 163 Section 38 Page | 120

the governing body of a maintained school in Wales or England; the governing body of an institution in the FE sector in Wales or England; the proprietor of an Academy; a youth offending team for an area in Wales or England; the person in charge of relevant youth accommodation in Wales or England; a Local Health Board; an NHS Trust; the National Health Service Commissioning Board; a clinical commissioning group; a NHS Foundation trust; a Special Health Authority. 12.28 These bodies must comply with the requests 164 unless doing so would be incompatible with the bodies’ own duties or would have an adverse effect on the exercise of their functions. 12.29 If the body decides not to comply with the request from the local authority they must write to the authority providing reasons for their decision. 165 12.30 Whilst the statutory requirement to respond only applies when a local authority makes the request for help or information, requests from schools and FEIs to the bodies listed above should nevertheless be considered and the bodies should act reasonably in responding to them. 12.31 Where a school or FEI is preparing the IDP, but is not able to obtain the help or information they require from relevant public bodies, they should notify the local authority. The local authority may need to take over responsibility for the preparation of the IDP and then seek information from the relevant public body using its statutory powers. 12.32 Regulations will be made which will provide that where a person is under a duty to comply with a request under this section, the person must comply with the request within a prescribed period, unless a prescribed exception applies. ALP to be secured by Health Boards and NHS Trusts 12.33 Some children and young people will require the support of health bodies to help meet their needs. Health bodies can help meet the needs of children and young people in a range of ways. For instance, they can: provide advice to improve effective and timely identification; 164 Section 58(2) of the Act 165 Section 58(3) of the Act Page | 121
