Children & Families Social Work Teams (East) and (West)
The Assessment Team and continued Support Teams for the East and West of Moray have been combined to form one team for the East and one for the West.
Based at Buckie Access Point (East) and Beechbrae Education Centre, Elgin (West), the Assessment section will typically ensure that an identified Team around the Child has been established; they will, on a multi-agency basis, complete a National Risk Assessment, using the recognised National Framework, starting as soon as practical in each case, and completing within a maximum of twelve weeks. Individual and discrete assessment will follow according to the needs/demands of the case; following assessment, there will follow a short term planned piece of work, or, if longer term needs for support/intervention are identified. Staffing within the teams consists of Senior Social Workers, Social Workers, Family Support workers and admin support.

Children's Disability Team
The Moray Council continuously aims to improve the outcomes of children, especially the most vulnerable.
It has been recognised for some time that the outcomes of children with disabilities have not been met as well as they could/should be. This includes recognition of the waiting times for child with disabilities to receive assessments and support.
To improve this, a dedicated social work team for children with disabilities has been set up.
