The team responsible for implementing the 11UI and twelve&up initiatives consists of a coordinator, initiative strategist, administrative support, referral and intake officer, case manager, school engagement support worker, 2 public school liaisons, 1 catholic school liaison; 3 sector representatives (Justice, Social Services, Health), 1 Jordan’s Principle coordinator and 2 support workers. Representatives from the Cognitive Disability Strategy and associated Regina Police Services – School Resource Officer will attend iCT meetings.
The team is centrally-housed in a shared office setting provided by Regina Public Board.
In function, team members promote the model within the community. Through outreach and education to both parents and other human service professionals, awareness is raised on what the initiatives offer. As a result, referrals are generated on children showing signs of vulnerability and risk. During the intake process, a child’s needs, risks, behaviours, vulnerabilities and interests are explored through interviews with parents, the child and communication with schools. Following an intake, TRiP’s Intersectoral Collaboration Team (iCT) is mobilized to identify appropriate resources and supports in the community that can contribute to integrated case management. With the family/caregiver, a Coordinated Custom Case Conference (C4) is held to develop an action plan around the needs of the child and their family. This larger group commits to providing ongoing support, referral and follow-up, until a child’s vulnerability subsides, and the group feels comfortable closing the child’s file.
Each TRiP team member is governed by their own sectors existing safety protocols, privacy frameworks, disclosure practices, confidentiality standards and must function within the policies and procedures of each mandate.
The composition of the TRiP team includes a human resource compliment with expansive experience in developing collaborative, intersectoral, social issue based strategic responses. Complimenting this is the perspective and practical application in policing, mental health, social service supports for long term and temporary wards of the province. A connection directly to both major school systems in Regina provides expertise in system navigation, student information and linkages to school professional supports. Justice and probation connections provide for responsiveness for reintegration and support.
