This procedure is designed to help professionals understand what to do if they have concerns about a child and to discern whether the child has additional needs or needs that mean they have been or are likely to be significantly harmed.
In the East Riding we are clear that children with different levels of need will be responded to appropriately by the range of agencies who work with them. This procedure is designed to clarify how different levels of needs should be addressed and has been based on national government guidance.
Guidance for Threshold of Needs and Intervention (updated 2015) is now available for everyone who works with children, young people and their families in the east riding of Yorkshire. It is about the way we can all work together, share information and take a child-centred approach.
