Children's social care

If you have a concern regarding a child or young person, please contact the Children's Access Point who ensure that children and young people live in a secure, stable and safe environment whether they live at home with their family or, if this is not possible, elsewhere in their community.

The Children's Access Point Team ensures that children, young people and their families receive the correct support when needs are identified and at the most appropriate level. The team supports other practitioners by advising them of the correct route for support to families and children. The focus is to make safe decisions about children at the earliest opportunity.
