Workshop webinar (free): Safeguarding Children Partnership – North East Lincolnshire Integrated Front door (inclusive of the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub)
October 21 @ 2:00 PM
The new Integrated Front door (inclusive of the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub) was launched on the 3rd August 2020 as part of work to continually improve services to children and families including Early Help. It is designed to assist all partners and the public to contact Children’s Services if they are worried or have concerns regarding Children. Advice and guidance can be provided and where appropriate support with the necessary completion of the early help assessment tool. This will allow for a better, more focused response for all as we ensure we get the right support to children and families first time.
To inform you of the latest changes, Social Care and Locality Family Hubs invite you to a workshop focussed upon explaining the changes and how they all link together to offer the most appropriate support to families in a timely manner:
- The Integrated Front Door
- The threshold of need document
- Early Help Assessment

The updated and revised Local Threshold Guidance criteria has been published on the SAFER NEL website. In addition the Multi agency Referral Form (MARF) has been simplified and will allow for better information to be to be provided.
The threshold of need (often referred to as the continuum of needs) is a guide for all who work with individual children and/or their families and their managers. Individuals who support children and families should always use their professional judgement and take into account; the age of the child, context of the situation and any protective and resilience factors. The key to getting it right for children in terms of identifying a child and families level of need will always be an evidence based professional judgement.
Community and locality panels have been redesigned Locality and Communities Panel Terms of Reference and have started running in the Locality Hubs. If you are concerned about a family not making progress on a plan and need to seek support/advice or wish to access a wider preventative service or seek some direction on what to do.
