How does it help?

A single assessment form guides professionals to ask the right questions to help assess the needs of a child or young person.

The form provides a clear way of recording what is happening in a child or young person’s life.

As part of the process, families are asked to agree to share their personal information with professionals, in order to discover what could change to meet the needs of their children.

Wherever possible, all professionals, parents and children and young people should contribute towards completing the single assessment form. However, it is a voluntary process and no-one should be forced to take part.

It is possible for a parent or young person to complete a single assessment form themselves to share with others, as long as this does not make the assessment too subjective.

On completion, the single assessment form needs to be submitted to Access and Response Team (ART) 01454 866000 , email:
