Humber, Coast and Vale Keyworker Service
The new Keyworker service is being developed as a response to the NHS England long term plan commitment that by 2023/24 children and young people with a learning disability, autism, or both, with the most complex needs will have a designated Keyworker.
The Keyworking function is an important response to ensuring children, young people and families get the right support at the right time, and that local systems are responsive to meeting their needs in a holistic and joined up way.
Caring for a child or young person with additional needs can mean you encounter more financial pressures. There is support out there, both locally and nationally. Go to our Money and benefits page for details of the help available.
