COMMON ASSESSMENT FRAMEWORK (FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE)

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

This item is being used for development purposes and has not yet been assured by the Information Standards Board for Health and Social Care.

The Common Assessment Framework (For Children and Young People) is a standardised approach to conducting assessments of children's additional needs and deciding how these should be met. The Common Assessment Framework (For Children and Young People) is a key part of delivering frontline services that are integrated, and are focused around the needs of children and young people. It can be used by practitioners across children's services in England.

The Common Assessment Framework (For Children and Young People) promotes more effective, earlier identification of additional needs, particularly in universal services. It aims to provide a simple process for a holistic assessment of children's needs and strengths; taking account of the roles of parents, carers and environmental factors on their development. Practitioners are then better placed to agree with children and families about appropriate modes of support. The Common Assessment Framework (For Children and Young People) also aims to improve integrated working by promoting coordinated service provisions.

For further information on the Common Assessment Framework (For Children and Young People), see the Department for Children, Schools and Families website.For further information on the Common Assessment Framework (For Children and Young People), see the Department for Education website.
