Model 3: Local authority employees


Youth Offending Teams, Social Care

Appropriate adults

YOT Officers and/or social workers act as an integrated part of their wider role. Sessional workers may also be used.


Funding is internal but there may be contributions from other local partners. Additional income may be received from spot purchasing of AA services where required from other agencies (e.g. DWP)


Costs may be less transparent where there is no dedicated budget line for AA provision.


Co-ordination requirements are lower where employees act as AAs. Responsibility for ensuring staff are trained, developed and supported forms part of an employee’s role. Where sessional workers are used, the requirement for co-ordination increases.


Police contact social care for AAs.

Information sharing

Social workers can access social care information sources directly both to gain and supply case information. Management information is shared with internal managers and other partners.
