Humber and North Yorkshire 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 and young people, families and carers 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.
The initial phase of this work 2021-2023 is focused on “children and young people who are inpatients or at risk of being admitted to hospital”.
