All children and young people who require integrated support from more than one practitioner should experience a seamless and effective service. This is delivered most effectively when one practitioner – a Lead Professional – takes a primary role to ensure frontline services are co-ordinated, coherent and achieving intended outcomes.
When putting together a package of support for a particular child and their family, representatives from the various agencies involved will agree with the child and family who is most appropriate to act as Lead Professional, taking into account a wide range of factors.
For a more detailed description of this role, please read the Lead Professional document.
If you have any queries about this, please contact your Early Help Co-ordinator.
