Multi-agency working

Working with individuals and families experiencing complex challenges often requires staff to work with multi agency partners to bring about effective and sustainable change.

This practical programme allows staff to consider blocks and barriers to effective multi agency working. We will consider skills to support staff to work effectively with partners including setting targets and agreeing support plans and how to effectively challenge.

It is practical and “hands on” with a focus on skills and strategy development, backed up by an understanding of why approaches work. The course will consider barriers and enablers and produces more confident and competent practitioners.

It is suitable for front line staff working on the Early Help/Troubled families agenda as well as school staff, children services, those in early years settings, the VCS, Housing and Health.
