The Team Around the Family (TAF) is a generic term used to describe the group of professionals, volunteers and members of the wider family who are involved; it must include family members working alongside professionals.
TAF meetings are when the family meets with the different key professionals involved in supporting them, to produce a plan to help them achieve their goals.
This plan is then reviewed on a regular basis to make sure it is working or if anything needs to change.
