Special guardianship

SGO support plans

Once the SGO assessment has concluded, a support plan will be drawn up. The plan will list all of the support that is going to be made to the carers, the child/young person and family.

All parties should be involved in writing the plan including the assessing social worker, the carer and the child/young person. The plan will detail any financial support, any contact arrangements, training for the carers, lifestory work, pupil premium and access to the Adoption Support Fund (ASF) to provide specialist therapeutic support.

The support plan will be signed and agreed before the SGO order is granted and will be reviewed annually.
