Upon receiving a request for the Day Services,
the Social Work Services of Aġenzija Sapport will carry out the intake
assessment and arrange for the necessary follow-up services. The team of Social
Workers will short-list the referrals based on the significant and critical
needs of the individuals, and submit their assessments to the central
administration of the Day Services.
Prior to admission, another assessment is
carried out by the Day Services Social Worker to assess whether the needs are
still the same. Follow-up assessments are done on a yearly basis, carried out by a
multi-disciplinary team, which includes the individual with disability, his/her
relatives and a pool of professional staff who are involved in the daily life
of the individual. Such process leads to the formulation of an Individual
Support Plan, which is then revised on a regular basis. It is of major
importance that these persons are involved at all levels and in all stages of
the preparation and the planning of this programme.
