Introducing the new intervention team

18 Nov 2021

Ealing Children’s Services have made some changes to how they deliver services.

The new Intervention Team will offer a timely response to children, young people and families who may benefit from brief intervention after a referral has been made to Ealing Children's Integrated Response Service (ECIRS).

About the intervention team

Social workers from the team will visit children and families, find out what help is needed and complete a short piece of work agreed by the family and key partners within 25 working days.

This type of intervention will take place instead of the lengthier assessment processes carried out by a Multi Agency Support Team (MAST), Supportive Action for Families in Ealing (SAFE) or other social care teams where a child and family meet the Intervention Team criteria. (The team's criteria will be based on Ealing's Thresholds of Need and response Level 3.)

Direct referral to ECIRS

All referrals to Children's Services should continue to be made in the usual way by direct referral to ECIRS on 020 8825 8000 (option 1).

ECIRS will decide whether to involve the Intervention Team (based on the team's criteria) or take other action.
