Reporting a concern – Threshold Document
The Threshold Document outlines the approach that will be taken in Portsmouth to promote the wellbeing and safety of children and families. It describes:
- How different tiers of needs are understood in Portsmouth and the threshold criteria to access services in accordance with the tier of need
- The legal definition of ‘Children in Need’ and eligibility for Children’s Social Care Services
- Conversation opportunities to identify appropriate support for children and families
Discuss with your safeguarding lead and use your professional judgement to identify the level of need of the child.
