Early Support and Care Coordination (ESCO)

About ESCO
Early Support Care Co-ordination (ESCO) aims to raise the standards of care for children and young people, aged 0-18 years. Who have significant and complex needs and require targeted coordination of services.

This can include:

sensory or physical difficulties
complex health needs including disability
babies leaving hospital with medical and other support needs
children who have a greater difficulty communicating
life limiting conditions and palliative care
children with multiple and significant factors which effect learning and development
ESCO helps to identify children’s needs and respond in the right way. It aims to ensure that the child, young person and their family feel more in control.

Refer a child to ESCO
To make a referral to the Early Support Care Co-ordination (ESCO) team, a professional working with the child must:

complete the Early Help Assessment form or the Early Help Child and Family Assessment,

then call us on 01522 782111 to log the request with Lincolnshire Customer Service Centre.

Your completed form must detail all aspects of what is working well, what is not and what needs to happen.

You must include:

details about the child’s unmet needs that are present from their disability
information about professionals working with the family
The parent or guardian of the child must give permission for you to complete and submit the form. They must also be involved in its completion.

If ESCO can support the unmet needs, a key worker will be allocated from the ESCO team. They will visit the family to explain more about care co-ordination and arrange an initial ESCO meeting review.
