Single Assessment Framework Early Help

South Gloucestershire’s Early Help Strategies aim to support children, young people and their families at the first signs of need to help improve outcomes and ensure they are safe, happy, healthy and well educated.

 

In South Gloucestershire we have an agreed Common Business and Delivery Process (CBDP) to use to assess the needs of children, young people and their families, and intervene early to improve outcomes. We want to ensure children, young people and their families are provided with integrated, accessible and equitable services which are designed to keep them safe, healthy and inspired to do the very best they can.

After agencies have used their own internal assessments and interventions, the next stage is to use the Single Assessment Framework early help (SAFeh) in order to involve partner organisations or support services in the wider assessment of need, and planned interventions in an integrated action plan and review.

Used in connection with the Child’s Journey of Need Threshold Tool, the needs of a child, young person or family can be clearly identified and the process of providing or accessing support services can begin.

More detailed information can be found in the SAFeh – Guidance for Professionals document.
