We have a range of resources to support your voluntary organisation, community group, charity or social enterprise with the many facets of safeguarding.

Threshold of need and response 2020

The SSCP has recently refreshed the Threshold of Need and Response Framework as an interim holding document. This document is the criteria for taking action and providing help across this full continuum to ensure that services are commissioned effectively and that the right help is given to the child at the right time.

A multi-agency working group is meeting in November to re-write the document. We want the views and experiences from practitioners, parents and young people to shape what it looks like and inform the working group plan.

Please complete this short survey by 27th November 2020.
