About the service

Early Support Care Co-ordination (ESCO) is committed to improving the delivery of services for disabled children, young people and their families. It enables services to co-ordinate their activity better and provide families with a single point of contact and continuity through key working and face to face information sharing and signposting.

ESCO ensures that service delivery is child, young person and family centred. It focuses on supporting services and practitioners to work in partnership with children, young people and their families.

ESCO is committed to raising standards for children with disabilities within Lincolnshire and can provide a service for children and young people between the ages of birth to 18 years while unmet care co-ordination needs are present from their disabilities. This can include;

  • Long term complex health needs including those with disability
  • Life limiting conditions and palliative care
  • Cognitive, sensory and/or physical impairment that significantly impacts on daily living
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Children and young people whose behaviour is associated with other impairments such as severe learning disabilities

Early Support is a way of working that helps to identify children’s needs early and respond in a way that ensures the child, young person and their family feel more in control. ESCO is underpinned by the ‘10 Early Support Principals’. These principles include enabling children, young people and their families to make informed choices and participate in shaping and developing the services that they use, valuing the uniqueness of children, young people and their families and ensuring service delivery is holistic, co-ordinated and seamless.

More information on Early Support can be found on the national website.
