Thresholds of need and response

Thresholds of Need and Response in Salford 2020 is effective from 20 October 2020. It replaces the previous version (January 2019).

It is for everyone working with children and their families. It helps identify actions to meet additional needs for children. 

It is the sole source of advice and guidance associated with levels of intervention for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in Salford. Please destroy all copies of the previous version.

Salford's Early Help Strategy 2018-2021 sits alongside Thresholds of Need and Response. See the Early Help page on the Partnerships in Salford website for more information.
