The Family Assessment and Safeguarding Service is a specialist multidisciplinary service.
The service provides child and parenting assessments and treatments in families where there is a high risk of severe parenting problems, including maltreatment and neglect or a high risk of major parent/child relationship difficulties and/or attachment disorder.
In addition, the service provides a court expert witness service including court reports and expert witness testimony. FASS carries out assessments within an Expert Team model. Components of the assessment are carried out by multiple team members according to their expertise; the case is subject to clinical discussion amongst team members to arrive at a consensus opinion. The Lead Author is then responsible for collating and editing the report, and summarising the opinion of the team.
