Multi-Agency Working - Practices Guidance

The guidance documents available here to download have been agreed by all partners in Sheffield through the Sheffield Safeguarding Children Board.

The guidance helps us all to think about the child or young person and their individual needs. It helps us to think about how we can best support them, ensuring that we intervene early and make the right referral at the right time. It sets out clearly Sheffield’s 5 levels of need which reflect a whole family approach to providing support.


Part one of the guidance available to download now is the thresholds of need. We are currently developing further documents around;

  • Whole Family working
  • Accessing Services
  • Assessments
  • Quality assurance
  • Workforce Development


These documents as a whole will make up the full guidance and will be available here shortly
