Locality and Community Support Service (LCSS) - Named conversation

LCSS provide named conversations for professionals to discuss Strengths & Needs, Team Around Family Meetings, and give information on other supports in the community for a particular child. Named conversations replace No Name conversations, and you will need to share the name of the child with us.

Named conversations with LCSS should take place with the family’s knowledge –please make use of the Early help guide to support conversations to explain what Early Help is, who LCSS are and how their information will be stored.
