ABOUT OUR SERVICE We are an Integrated Service comprising of Health and Social Care staff who offer treatment and support to young people with an additional need and / or complex health need. ISCAN is a community service and we work from a range of sites across Tameside and Glossop. We offer assessments and treatment in a variety of places including local clinics, nurseries, special and mainstream schools and young people's homes. We work closely with families and other professionals to support young people to achieve their potential in all aspects of their life. WHAT WE CAN OFFER Our aim is to offer a coordinated family focused service to enable young people to achieve their potential regardless of their level of additional need. − We work together to offer assessment, advice and treatment for young people with a range of difficulties. − We put the young person and their family at the heart of our service so that their opinions are listened to. − We work closely with teaching staff and other professionals to provide integrated care.
