The Prevention and Support Service (PASS) provides integrated support to children, young people and their families. The key objective of the service is to offer practical advice, support and direct case work to families to prevent issues escalating and requiring statutory intervention.
PASS comprises a range of professionals including:
- children's centres
- youth offer
- social workers
- family support workers
- parental outreach workers
- community support worker
- programme manager
PASS is supported by a range of services that have strategic oversight. It is based on a 'team around the family' approach, with designated lead professionals responsible for co-ordination of case work.
Organisations providing early help services are listed on the Ask Thurrock website.
