Children's care professionals processes

Process and guidance

Most children and young people and their families in Thurrock can be supported through a range of services for all.

These include:

  • early years
  • education
  • health
  • housing
  • leisure facilities
  • youth services
  • services provided by voluntary organisations

Organisations providing these services are listed on the Ask Thurrock website.

Some children have more complex needs, however, and may need support from:

  • specialist services
  • targeted services

The processes and guidance on the following pages is mainly for professionals and services that:

  • are in regular or daily contact with children or families
  • may have a concern about a child or young person

Information to directors of children’s services

We send information about services and facilities in Thurrock to directors of children’s services in other local authorities, for sharing in their areas. It includes the process for notifying us of the placement of a child in Thurrock, and information about accessing services.

The information is sent in the form of a letter, which can be downloaded below:
