Single Point of Access for Children's Emotional Wellbeing - Newport

About SPACE-Wellbeing

SPACE-Wellbeing is a multi-agency process to co-ordinate help, including both early intervention and specialist provision, for children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing.  The process brings together professionals from different agencies who support children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing, in order to help children and their families to get the right help, first time. The SPACE-Wellbeing process is hosted by ABUHB’s five Local Authority partners (Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen).


The objectives of SPACE-Wellbeing are:

  • Getting the right support, from the right person, to the right person, first time

  • Easy access through a clear ‘request for support’ pathway and joined-up working between the agencies

  • Reducing duplication of referrals, assessments and interventions

  • Getting more ‘support in’ to frontline staff, meaning existing networks of relationships are supported and strengthened
