Collaboration Meeting

Early intervention

Breckland Collaboration Meetings offer support to professionals from statutory and voluntary agencies, who work with individuals and families experiencing difficulties. 

The Collaboration is a multi-agency partnership, working to address low level, emerging needs that can be met through early intervention. Support can be through advice, guidance or practical support. 

We can help with:

  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Benefit issues
  • Debt and finance problems
  • Domestic abuse
  • Drug or alcohol dependency 
  • Employment or educational support
  • Family support concerns 
  • Housing issues and homelessness
  • Mental or physical health issues 
  • Social isolation and loneliness
  • Struggling as a single parent
  • Youth offending

If you're a resident looking for support, speak to a front line professional (organisations listed below) to see how they can help. Unfortunately we cannot take self-referrals.

To make a referral, you'll need:

  • For your organisation to be signed up to the Breckland Collaboration Partnership Agreement (see below).
  • For you as an individual to be compliant with our Multi-agency Co-location & Information Sharing Agreement.
  • Consent from the family/ individual(s) to refer into the Collaboration Meeting.
  • Information to complete the Breckland Collaboration Referral Form, which includes:
    • Details of the household, including address.
    • Full names and dates of birth.
    • Details of the type of help that is required.
    • Details of any previous or current help that is being provided.

What happens next?

Partners meet every Wednesday morning to discuss referred cases, using Microsoft Teams.   

If you're not yet a partner agency, please complete the Partnership and Multi-Agency Information Sharing Agreements to participate in the next meeting. 

Once compliant, any partner can refer cases. Referring agencies must attend to present their case and provide updates as necessary. If individuals are unable to attend the meeting, another agency representative should attend.
