Complex Case Panel Terms of Reference and Referral Form


This is the multi-agency risk management panel for vulnerable children and young people with complex needs that require complex co-ordination and a multi-agency response in which all professionals including commissioners and providers work together regardless of their individual agency.   Cases considered will include children in need, children in need of protection and children looked after. Health and Social Care teams (including 0-25, TYS, Safeguarding and Children Looked after Teams can refer into the panel. It is the expectation that those involved with the young person (across the agencies) have been working together to address needs and risks.
