The threshold document sets out the four levels of intervention from Universal Services to Statutory Services and include descriptors for each level. It is very important for children’s services professionals to be familiar with the four levels of need as this will help ensure we work together effectively to provide the right help at the right time to children and young people.
The thresholds can also be downloaded below on an A3 poster illustrating all the thresholds on one page. This can be printed as a helpful poster for display in offices.
