Training and resources

Threshold tool

The Devon Children and Families Partnership (DCFP) has adopted a multi-agency model to help professionals assess safeguarding needs for children and young people.

The DCFP has adopted the continuum of need model (based on the Torbay Safeguarding Children Board threshold tool) to provide a multi-agency, whole system approach to assessment, prevention and intervention for children, young people and their families and directly support the Devon Assessment Framework (DAF).

The adoption of the model provides consistency for professionals working across geographical areas.  This dynamic model provides a needs led, outcome driven matrix of need and vulnerability which, when used effectively, can match the child/young person’s needs with the appropriate assessment and provision.

Download the Threshold Tool and the interactive threshold matrix and watch the training video below.
