Continuum of Need

The Bury Safeguarding Partnership Multi-Agency Continuum of Need and accompanying guidance is for practitioners and managers in all agencies who work with, or are involved with, children, young people, and their families. The Continuum of Need can assist practitioners and managers to identify a child's level of need and/or likelihood of delayed development or harm and match that need to the right support, at the right time, by the right person and in the right place.
