Bexley Local Offer

General Information - Social Care and Support

The Referral and Assessment Service Teams focus on skilled, immediate investigation of referrals and, in order to ensure that the child will be put in touch with the relevant agency or service who will meet their needs as soon as possible. This will happen as quickly as possible, typically limited to eight weeks or until the completion of assessment for ongoing services has been determined.

There are five locality teams who focus on cases requiring ongoing social work. This locality approach will improve alignment with locally based partner agencies and other Council services and aid to promote more integrated approaches within the Council. The impact of closer working relationships between the locality teams, other services and other agencies supporting children and families should provide more secure resolutions to issues, avoiding referrals or prolonged involvement with high-threshold services.
