  • The ‘Vulnerability Checklist’, which is the agreed multi-agency threshold document for North Yorkshire
  • Forms for professionals’ for referring a child or young person to the Children and Families Service, Partnership Information Sharing Form, Reports for Child Protection Conferences, Notification of Child Deaths and more
  • Child Death’ notification forms, procedures and information about the Child Death Review Process
