Vulnerability Checklist

All agencies working within North Yorkshire Children’s Trust and North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board have a responsibility to address the needs of children and young people in their area. Effective joint working provides the framework in which children’s needs can be met across the spectrum.

The provision of preventative services should form part of a continuum of help and support to respond to the different levels of need of individual children and families.

Where need is relatively low level individual services and universal services may be able to take swift action. For other emerging needs a range of early help services may be required, coordinated through an early help assessment. Where there are more complex needs, help may be provided under section 17 of the Children Act 1989 (children in need). Where there are child protection concerns (reasonable cause to suspect a child is suffering or likely to suffer significant harm) local authority Children’s social care must make enquiries and decide if any action must be taken under section 47 of the Children Act 1989.

This vulnerability checklist is intended to help identify how children’s needs might be met across universal, early help, targeted prevention and intensive/acute services.
