Warrington Thresholds of Need Document

Warrington Thresholds of Need Document

The document has been designed to ensure that children’s needs are responded to at an appropriate level and in a timely way. The guidance should be seen as overarching guidance for the children and young people’s workforce in Warrington and be used as a guide for all agencies, professionals and volunteers to consider how to best meet the additional needs and vulnerabilities of individual children and the actions required to meet those needs.

Partnership working is essential to ensuring positive outcomes for children and to reduce the need for more intensive interventions at a later stage.

The document sets out the procedures which all practitioners must follow in identifying, raising and responding to concerns about children when coming into contact with them, or receiving information about them.
