Threshold Framework: 'Accessing the Right Help at the Right Time'

The multi-agency threshold framework supports agencies across Stoke-on-Trent to assess and identify a child’s level of need and how to access the right level of support at the right time.

This guidance for thresholds of need and intervention underpins the local vision to provide support for children and families at the earliest opportunity - right through to specialist and statutory interventions when it is needed to promote the wellbeing and safety of children and young people.

It aims to offer a clear framework and a common understanding of ‘thresholds of need’ for practitioners within all agencies, to help to promote a shared awareness of the different interventions required to effectively support children, young people and their families or carers.
