    4.14 Absence of the Key Worker

    Last updated 23/09/2021


    It is the joint responsibility of the key worker, and the local authority Children’s Services team manager, to ensure that clear cover arrangements are in place when the key worker is absent on annual leave, training etc.

    Parents and children and other Core Group members must be informed of planned and unplanned absences of the key worker, who will be covering the role and what contacts will be made.
