Welfare calls for vulnerable children update

As from this week the Early Years and Childcare Advisers (EYCAs) will only be making the weekly welfare calls to the open providers that have vulnerable children known to social care that do not currently have an allocated social worker.

Closed providers with vulnerable children will still receive a call as we need to make sure that there continued contact with the vulnerable children.

As an open provider if you have a vulnerable children who are not attending your setting at present, you should continue to do weekly welfare checks on the children and continue to follow the Early Years Risk Assessment RAG rating guidance.

All providers must continue to follow their safeguarding policies and procedures and should escalate in the usual way if they have concerns.

Thank you for all of your support with the Welfare Calls.
