Procedures and guidance

What are the local procedures and guidance?

One of the core functions of East Riding Safeguarding Children Partnership is to develop policies and procedures including those on action taken where there are concerns about the safety and welfare of a child, including thresholds for intervention.

We are continuing to review and update our procedures in order to ensure they reflect recent changes in legislation. If you have any queries please discuss them with your manager or child protection lead.

Effective Support for Children, Young People and Families In the East Riding of Yorkshire, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and that children are best supported to grow and achieve within their own families. By working together, we will develop flexible services which are responsive to children’s and families’ needs and provide the right level of intervention at the right time in the least intrusive way.

The threshold guidance below is for all practitioners working together with children and families to provide early help, additional, intensive and specialist support. It outlines the four levels of need and the signs of safety approach we will use to understand the needs of children, young people and their families how they think changes can be made and what they can expect when they seek support or professionals become involved. It also provides guidance for professionals so that they know when they should be working with other professionals and where to go to get additional help and services.
