What the Team Around Setting Is

Signpost

The Team Around the Setting (TAS) is a multi-agency approach to provide families with the help they need at the earliest opportunity. The Team Around the Setting meetings are arranged by someone who knows the Children, Young People and Family, for example, School, College or Nursery and they will take place in those settings.

Parents and families do not attend the meeting but the agencies in attendance will make sure that the Children, Young Peoples and Families wishes and feelings are at the centre of the discussions.

If a Lead Professionals has not been identified the Early Help Adviser team to explore an Early Help Assessment and/or a Team Around the Setting. All families requiring Early Help Support are entitled to an Early Help Assessment and Team Around the Setting.
