Scottish Borders Council’s Early Years Assessment Team (the Team) is a multi-agency Team comprising family support workers, infant mental health workers, midwives and social workers. The Team has developed a model of early intervention to improve the care and support that vulnerable families receive during pregnancy and once the baby has been born. In an effort to capture and analyse this model, the Team requested that the CELCIS Permanence and Care Team (PaCT) carry out an evaluation of its work and its impact on families. The Team and PaCT agreed to work together towards this end.
