We're here for you

A Keyworker will be assigned when:

  • There is a potential risk of inpatient admission to a mental health unit or hospital
  • A child or young people has a diagnosis of a Learning Disability, Autism, or both
  • For children and young people aged 0 – 25 years

A Keyworker will visit you and your family to get to know what you are great at and to understand what you and your family would like support with.

A Keyworker will work with your child or young person to identify their future goals. A Keyworker will make sure your child or young person and your family are listened to and involved in decisions about care and treatment.

A Keyworker will not replace anyone who currently supports your child or young person.

If you have decided you would like to have a Keyworker to help support your child or young person, a professional that already supports you will discuss this with you and complete a referral.

The Keyworker Team will then contact you and let you know who that Keyworker will be and arrange a time to come and meet you.

Your Keyworker will work with you and your young person to develop a Keyworker Plan which can include support with meetings, finding the right services for you to access and support the health and wellbeing of your young person.
