NEW! Nottingham City Threshold of Needs - Getting the Right support at the Right Time for Nottingham City's Children and Families

Previously known as the 'Family Support Pathway' Nottingham City Threshold of Needs Guidance has been developed by Nottingham City’s Safeguarding Partnership  alongside multi-agency partners for practitioners and their managers in agencies working with children and families in Nottingham City.

The purpose of the guidance is to assist with decision making in order that children and families receive the right help at the right time from the most appropriate service(s) and at the right level.

Other Resources:

NHS Nottingham City CCG have commissioned a video animation aimed at citizens to encourage them to attend medical appointments, and to take children and adults they care for to their appointments.  The animation is aimed at raising awareness about the consequences of missing appointments and to ensure that children and adults get the medical care that they need.

The animation is a follow-on from the Rethinking ‘Did Not Attend’ video which acted as a powerful reminder that children do not take themselves to appointments, and for practitioners to reflect on the impact of missed appointments on a child’s wellbeing.
