THE REFERRAL AND ASSESSMENT TEAM (RAS)

All referrals from professionals and members of the public are sent to the RAS Team. This team responds to new referrals from professionals and members of the public within 30 days.

Social workers in this team complete Child and Family Assessments (CFA) , signpost children and families to other support agencies and investigate allegations of neglect, abuse and any aspects that could pose a risk of harm to children. By doing so appropriate interventions are devised, the welfare of children is promoted and children are safeguarded from harm.
