If the Local Authority has offered early help involvement and your needs are being met through that service, there will be no parent carers assessment offered as the eligibility for one would not be met.
How the assessment is done
A social worker from our Children’s and Families Service will meet you. They’ll ask you about:
any difficulties you have because of your caring role – for example, the effect it is having on your health
what you need, to help you with your caring role
doing activities with your other children
If you agree, they’ll ask the views of other organisations who help you, like your child’s school.
