Right Help, Right Time
On the 14th February 2020, the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership published the refreshed threshold guidance “Right Help, Right Time” – Delivering effective support for children and families in Birmingham. (Version 4 - February 2020).
In terms of updates to the guidance all professionals are asked to focus particularly on the ‘four layers of need’ as these have been strengthened and enhanced in respect of neglect and contextual safeguarding. The guidance takes account of the recent publication of ‘Tackling Neglect: A Strategy for the Prevention and Reduction of Neglect in Birmingham 2019-2022’, and developments in our partnership approach to contextual safeguarding, and provides everyone with clear advice about what to do and how to respond if a child and their family need extra support.
