Ealing Children's Integrated Response Service

What ECIRS will do

ECIRS will screen the referral information. This will be done according to Ealing's Thresholds of Need & Assessment Protocols 2019/20. The Thresholds document helps professionals/practitioners to assess the level of risk to a child or young person and determine the response needed.

If there are concerns that a child has been harmed or is at risk of immediate harm, ECIRS will take appropriate action to safeguard the child or young person.

Where the referral concerns a request for help for a child, young person and family, ECIRS may refer on to another children’s services team for assessment and support.

In some cases, ECIRS may signpost the referrer to universal services accessible to all. Further information on these can be found on Ealing’s Family Services Directory
