Threshold of Need
Produced through a collaboration between partner agencies, the new Sheffield Threshold of Need Guidance was released in November with a 9 minute video to demonstrate how to use the guidance most effectively.
The following short guides accompany this document:
Early Help Assessment
A new Early Help Assessment form was launched in December 2023. It replaces FCAF, Early Help Part 1 and many other assessment and referral forms. It is designed to include the voice of the child whilst avoiding families needing to have multiple assessments. It also provide better quality referral information and reduces bureaucracy for frontline workers.
