The Dudley Threshold Framework document offers guidance on accessing the right help an support services for children, young people and their families at the right time. It sets out the different thresholds of need and intervention from early help to statutory intervention.
All organisations, agencies and individuals who work with children and young people in Dudley, including those whose work with adults brings them into contact with children and young people should understand these thresholds.

Early Help Strategy
Dudley’s Early Help Strategy and early help assessment has now been launched and sets out what is early help, its importance and what it means for the children and families of Dudley. The strategy has been approved by the cross partner/stakeholder Children and Young People’s Alliance CYPA. The assessment is used where a child's needs do not meet the threshold.
