Multi-Agency Safeguarding Children Procedures
WSCP is part of the West Yorkshire Consortium for multi-agency safeguarding children procedures.
In partnership with Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnerships all multi-agency safeguarding children procedures have been developed as a framework for services in Wakefield working with children and families to follow. They reflect relevant legislation, guidance and local context in West Yorkshire and Wakefield.
Those who work or volunteer with children and families need to have a working knowledge of these procedures.
The procedures are maintained and hosted directly on the West Yorkshire Consortium Procedures website which can be accessed here:
Continuum of Need: A Framework to Support Decision Making
The Continuum of Need: A Framework to Support Decision Making has been developed to help those who work or volunteer with children and families across the Wakefield District with making decisions about how to best provide support.
This approach is aligned to the district's Wakefield Families Together model, where a child and their family receive the right help, at the right time, from the right service, and importantly, from the right person, whilst always acting in the best interests of a child.
The Continuum of Need is available in two versions and can be accessed by clicking below:
- Continuum of Need: A Framework to Support Decision Making (A5 leaflet style)
- Continuum of Need: A Framework to Support Decision Making (A4 single page portrait)
