This page is a directory of common tools available for professionals working with families which can support undertaking assessments, measuring risks and developing plans to support children and young people. These resources have been selected to support the work of the PSCP and its policies and procedures (currently available in the online safeguarding children procedures manual)
It should be noted:
- Not all tools are appropriate for all families, individuals or situations.
- Practitioners should use the tools which best support them and the family in appropriately identifying, assessing and responding to their needs.
- Practitioners can and should be creative about how they use these tools to make them appropriate to the individual, circumstance or situation.
