Safeguarding the Children and Young People of Liverpool
NEW Responding to Need Guidance and Levels of Need Framework
Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board’s (LSCB) ‘Responding to Need Guidance and Levels of Need Framework’ has been designed with partners from across the Children’s Trust and the LSCB to ensure that children’s needs are responded to at an appropriate level and in a timely way. This guidance should be seen as overarching guidance for the whole of the children and young people’s workforce within Liverpool. It is a guide for all agencies, professionals and volunteers, to consider how best to meet the needs of individual children. This document replaces the previous LSCB ‘Threshold Guidance Aid to Assessment’ document. The name of the guidance has been changed to place greater emphasis on responding to ‘levels of Need’ and specifically focus on improving outcomes for children at the earliest opportunity, through effective partnership working with families and partner agencies.

Hello and welcome to the Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) website. We hope you will find it helpful.
Liverpool SCB and all its members believe that Families keep Children Safe but sometimes they need some help to do this from professionals. It is our role to ensure that when professionals work with Families to Safeguard Children the work is done to a high standard and we all work well together to give Children and their Families the best service possible.
