As well as this, we are striving to improve education professional’s knowledge, understanding and awareness of what it is like in CASS/MASH on a day to day basis. DSLs being able to “experience” life on the ground floor at Lancaster Circus, there will increase understanding and awareness of the processes and procedures that the professionals here in Children’s Services undertake, but will also help to forge but also the professional relationships and links between school and Children’s Services.
The format/agenda would be as follows:
Strategic tour of floor – CASS. Introduction to people/agencies. (such as Early Help, Partners, Referral and Advice Officers and staff on Inbox)
Strategic tour of floor – MASH. Introduction to people/agencies. (such as social workers, police, health, DA screening and CSE teams.)
