Dear Freedom Of Information Requests (LCFT),
Hi Sue, Thanks for the information. If you went back to the service managers and mentioned implementation of the tiered service relating to need in accordance with the Health Visitor Plan you will hopefully find someone who is collating the data re child protection plans, special needs, in need, families needing extra support because of adult needs etc. Just a thought.

Yours sincerely,

PJBallinger

Dear Freedom Of Information Requests (LCFT),
Oh dear! Now you have me really worried!
Seriously do they have no handle at all on the level of risk and need that Health Visitors are having to deal with?

Yours sincerely,

Hi
information regarding the number of Children in need - section 17 and the number of Children subject to a child protection plan - section 47. This information is held by the Local Authority, LCC for Lancashire and Blackburn Borough Council for BWD children.

The FOI for this information needs to be obtained from the local authorities.

Health Visitors use a caseload weighting tool to categorise the Children and families they are working with.
