AMENDMENT

This chapter was updated in March 2017 to reflect the new structure in Children's Social Care.


Looked After Children

  • A planning meeting will take place six months before the young person's 16th birthday. This will enable appropriate planning to take place before transfer to the 16 Plus Team.

Children with Complex Needs

  • CwCN post 16 years will be transferred to the 16 Plus Team at a planning meeting immediately before the young person's 16th birthday.
