Level 2 - Additional (My Plan)

The child/young person's needs can be met through your agency working jointly with another agency.  Gain consent of the family to hold a Team Around the Family (TAF) Meeting and formulate a My Plan for delivery and review.  The Lead Practitioner will coordinate the support.

Listening to children in order to gain and understand their lived experience is paramount in identifying their needs in order to ensure a graduated approach. There are many ways in which we can achieve this, including the use of direct work tools such as My Journey, Buttons Genogram, Blob Tree, Progress Chart.  These tools can be found within the Direct Work Tools and Resources section of the directory, which can be accessed by clicking HERE.

At Level 2, a My Plan should be used, templates for which can be found in the relevant drop-down below.
