Partnership of the year

  • Comment

Winner: North Yorkshire CC

North Yorkshire’s multi-agency screening team brings together partners from the council’s children’s social care and prevention services, the police and health colleagues from Harrogate and District Foundation Trust. The team screens every case received within 24 hours of contact being made, reviewing the dangers and strengths within a family. The agencies share information and make decisions to ensure families receive the right service at the right time through necessary and proportionate interventions.

Judges’ comments: "This council created an intermediate care model with sector-wide involvement and support showing tangible outcomes and reducing acute admissions."
