 there is always the possibility that some gains can be made through the use of CUSTTAD

For CUSTTAD to work effectively direct contact with the family is managed by a separate worker

No child is invited to use CUSTTAD unless their parents/carers have given their permission 


But it is the child who makes the final decision whether or not to accept the invitation

When a child does have concerns CUSTTAD aims to resolve them as speedily as possible, with the child's involvement and with the assistance of their parents/carers

 Other professionals may be asked to assist if required
