Children and Families Practices - one family, one plan


Children and Families Practices offer Early Help services for families with additional or considerable needs. There are three teams (North, South and Central) that cover Milton Keynes and ensure support is more accessible to children, young people and their families.

The approach sees the council working in an integrated way with partners to improve outcomes for our children, young people and their families. This means that for one family there will be one key worker and one plan.

How to make a referral

Any concerns about a child or family should be directed to the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).
