Updated Threshold Document

Category: Safeguarding

Wednesday 15th July 2015

In April 2015, the Sutton Safeguarding Children Board revised its threshold document which refers to the London Continuum of Need -  a guide to thresholds for four levels of service.

The movement up and down the continuum of need is not exactly the same for each child; it will depend on level of risk, engagement of the child/young person or family with services and the history of past harm for a child or young person.  The Continuum of Need provides indicators of need to inform discussion and planning between services and agencies about the kind of support required. 

Following the recent publication of the Serious Case Review (SCR) for Child E, the LSCB have scheduled two multi-agency learning events entitled "Learning from Serious Case Review (Child E) - is there anything professionals could have done differently?". The events will focus on:

- Key features of the case 
- Key questions and findings 
- Learning points

- The LSCB response and action plan
To view the full report please click here: 
​The events will be facilitated by Fergus Smith, the independent author of the Child E SCR; and Anna Cassin, ​Designated Nurse Safeguarding Children and Adults, Sutton CCG.
There are two dates scheduled. Places can be booked using the links below the dates:
23rd September 2015, 09:30-12:30 at Sutton Salvation Army 
7th October 2015, 09:30-12:30 at the Chaucer Centre, Morden
