Revised Thresholds of Need and Support and online MARF now live

​Thresholds of Need and Support in Wolverhampton

The revised document is now live.and available to download by clicking on this link. The thresholds themselves haven't changed but the document has been updated to take account of:

  • the introduction of the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) in January 2016.
  • the creation of a triage system at the front door which determines whether a referral requires Early Intervention Services in the first instance.
  • the introduction of Local Authority Strengthening Families Hubs within the City
