Child and family assessment (CAF) form

The child and family assessment is a tool which enables you to capture unmet needs and identify risk factors.

You can complete one form for a family (including parents) rather than having to complete one form per child. You need to ensure that each child's needs are considered and they need to remain the focus of the assessment.

The timescales for completing an assessment is 28 days. This should be a process of gathering information from the range of professionals involved with the family and not just self-reporting information by parents.

This will need to be completed electronically and emailed securely to the CAF admin team.
