ContactPoint Aims

ContactPoint will be a key tool in enabling more effective use of information to improve well-being and to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.

It can take a long time for a professional to find out who else is working with the same child. ContactPoint means they won’t waste time trying to find out this simple information, or duplicating work already being done by other services. This means practitioners can spend more time delivering services to children and families.

Contactpoint is a vital component of the Every Child Matters programme to improve outcomes for children.

ContactPoint Objectives

ContactPoint will be available to authorised practitioners who need it to do their job. It will be possible to quickly find out who else is working with a child or young person with whom they have contact.

The course aims to help you understand how ContactPoint will help in supporting Integrated Working.
