This new section was added to the procedures site in September 2018 and contains information on the AIM2 Assessment.
Derby City Council uses a Strengths Based Approach for all work with children and families.
The AIM2 Assessment is a specialist assessment used in Derby to assess the level of risk of sexual harm that may be posed by a young person. The AIM2 assessment is undertaken by two suitability qualified practitioners.
A risk of sexual harm may be identified at a number of points including:
- Referrals into First Contact and Reception service;
- Referral into the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH);
- Early Help, Locality Social Care, Children in Care, Integrated Disabled Children's Service teams identifying this risk in on-going case work with a young person and their family;
- In a Vulnerable Children's Meeting (VCM) in either a locality or Integrated Disabled Children's Service (IDCS) context;
- An offence being committed/alleged which leads to a referral to the Youth Offending Service (YOS) via a Court Order/Out of Court disposal. Or risk being identified in on-going case work in the YOS.
