Levels of Need - Liverpool

In Liverpool we have developed a Levels of Need Framework to support practitioners to work together to promote children’s welfare and provide early help. The ‘windscreen’ model illustrated below is used to assist in assessing and identifying a child/young person’s level of need; what type of services/resources may meet those needs and the process to follow in moving from identification of need to provision of services. The diagram attached outlines each level of need.
