Thresholds of need

The Single Assessment Framework outlines the process of the single assessment process in North Tyneside and includes both early help assessments and statutory assessments.

The Threshold documents are held on the safeguarding board website.

They give clear criteria for taking action and providing the right help at the right time to children, young people and their families in order to effectively meet their needs.

The different levels show how professionals and the organisations they work for should work together to offer the right kind of help and protection at the right time.

Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust and North Tyneside Council have developed thresholds guidance in relation to unborn children specifically for practitioners working with pregnant women.
