Integrated Front Door (IFD) / CYP&F Assessment Information
Information for parents/carers when making a referral to Children's Social Care
As a professional, you may identify safeguarding children concerns and need to make a referral to Children's Social Care.
To support professionals when informing a family that a referral is being made, Sefton Council (IFD) have produced a postcard which can be provided to families to explain 'what happens next'....This simple postcard will explain the possible next steps and a telephone contact number.
Download and print off copies and keep them to hand when required. MASH Postcard (click to download)
Sefton Children's Services have produced information leaflets for families regarding Children, Young People and Family Assessments which are helpful to explain to families what is involved in assessments and plans etc. Professionals can use this information for families when referrals are being considered to explain what is involved. #MakeADifference
