The Continuum of Need

Category: General

The Continuum of Need Incorporating Threshold Guidance, previously referred to as the Safeguarding Children’s Threshold, is a means of providing needs-led appropriate access to services in compliance with statutory duties.  The Continuum of Need Windscreen demonstrates the levels of need children, young people and their families can move between when considering the type of support needed.

You will be able to use this link to update any existing policy/procedure/guidance that your organisation may possess that includes a reference to the old Threshold document. Please ensure that from the 23rd March 2021, you recognise that there is only one children’s threshold tool and that will be the Continuum of Need (incorporating threshold guidance).
