What to do if you are worried about a child

West Berkshire Threshold Criteria

In 2020 West Berkshire Council produced the attached threshold criteria document (via the link below) for use by all front line practitioners, to promote a shared responsibility to meeting the safeguarding needs of children and young people.

This document provides a framework for professionals working directly or indirectly with children, young people and families within statutory, voluntary, private and independent agencies.

It aims to help practitioners identify a child’s level of need and to be familiar with the best way to access the support needed. The guidance does not remove the need for workers to make a professional judgment when considering the identified needs of children.

It introduces a continuum of help and support, providing information on the levels of need and gives examples of some of the indicators that can be a sign of a child or young person in need of additional support.
