Team Around the Child

Children and families may need extra support at different times in their lives.

Team Around the Child (TAC) is a group of people who want the best for the child or young person.  Who will work together in an open and honest way to create a plan of support.

TAC starts when a worry is raised about a child or young person and coordinated support is required.

A Lead Professional is the person who has the best relationship with the child and family. They complete the Early Help Child and Family Assessment. This role is reviewed regularly.
