Services and Provision available to families

Early Support Care Co-ordination (ESCO) works alongside children and young people with a disability and their families, providing timely support and care co-ordination that places families at the heart of decision making about their child. The services and provision that are available are;

ESCO Drop-in appointments

The ESCO service provides drop-in appointments at different Children’s Centres across Lincolnshire for parent/carers who have children with disabilities and/or sensory impairments between the ages of 0-18 years.

A drop-in appointment provides the opportunity for parents/carers to meet with an ESCO Key Worker for an appointment to discuss the available information, services and support in Lincolnshire. ESCO offers one hour sessions for parents/carers at a convenient Children’s Centre.

Parents/carers can book a drop in appointment through the Customer Service Centre on 01522 782111. The Customer Service Centre will be able to advise on appropriate dates, times and locations.

ESCO Care Co-ordination

ESCO facilitates a multi-agency support network, with an ESCO Key Worker providing a single point of contact to prioritise the child or young person’s needs through regular review meetings.

To access care co-ordination requires an involved professional completing an Early Help Assessment form (EHA) and logging the request with Lincolnshire’s Customer Service Centre on: 01522 782111. The EHA is screened to establish if ESCO can support the unmet needs. If allocated, a Key Worker from the ESCO team will visit the family at home to further explain about care co-ordination and discuss arrangements for the initial ESCO review meeting.
