In order to ensure the effectiveness of plans for children and young people, the Integrated Working Team need to hold a copy of action plans resulting from team around the child/team around the family activity.
We would therefore be grateful if you could return the attached plans to the Integrated Working Team after each team around the child/team around the family meeting.

Early Help Assessment
Distance-Travelled Tool1. The distance-travelled tool is a way of tracking progress with children, young people and families being supported via an early help assessment.
2. This should be used at the time of assessment, and then at any review, 3 & 6 month or appropriate closure meeting.
3. Please submit this distance-travelled tool alongside any common assessment and review notes.
Child’s/Young person’s name:
Date of birth:
Parent’s name: / Lead Professional’s name:
Please score each element on a scale of 1 to 10, which will then lead to a sub-total for each aspect of need. 1 indicates the most serious concern and 10 indicates no concerns.
The distance-travelled tool is not designed to replace existing outcomes tools (e.g Likert scale, Family Outcomes Stars etc) but to provide a common scale across all Bath and North East Somerset services and to function as a top-sheet by which outcomes can be tracked and compared. It is also designed to be used in conjunction with, and not to replace the assessment process.
