Teams are multi-disciplinary with an ethos of collaborative practice – within the team and with children, young people, parents and carers. The teams work in communities with partner services within associated school groups and across the Highland area.

Practice Leads (for early years, for school years and for care & protection services) work together within the team to provide an integrated service to children & families.
