SSCB Multi-Agency Threshold Document



Following last year’s OFSTED review, subsequent audit work commissioned by both the Board and Children’s Social Care and feedback from frontline practitioners, please find the refreshed version of the SSCB Multiagency Threshold Document.

In consultation with partners the document has been amended to reflect current processes in Sandwell. This includes references to the new operating model for COGs and the Signs of Safety model currently being deployed across Children’s Social Care (discussions are underway to make Signs of Safety training available across the partnership). In conjunction with making the overall document more succinct, the threshold matrix has also been reformatted in order to make it easier to establish the level of need for the child or young person.
