Case Transfer Policy It is 44 pages long! YOT case managers should inform TVP at least three months prior to the anticipated transfer date All cases being transferred must include at least one three way meeting between the transferring YOT case manager, receiving TVP offender manager and the young person. At the point of transfer documents/information must be sent to TVP
Case Transfer Policy Upon notification from the YOT, TVP will allocate the case prior to the formal transfer, to allow the new supervising officer to attend any relevant meetings and liaise with the YOT Officer. In all appropriate cases TVP staff should be invited to any reviews, MAPPA meetings, Child in Care Reviews and professional meetings etc during the 3 month period leading up to transfer. Where the young person is LAC or a Care Leaver, the allocated social worker must be invited to all meeting between YOT & TVP.
