Children's Needs & Response Framework

The Rochdale's Children's Needs and Response Framework applies to all children and young people from conception to the age of 18 years. It has been developed to assist practitioners and managers in assessing and identifying a child's level of need and crucially how best to respond and meet those needs as early as possible to prevent difficulties escalating into crises.

Children's Needs and Response Framework (2021)

The Multi Agency Referral Form has been approved by the Rochdale Borough Children and Young People’s Partnership and the Rochdale Borough Safeguarding Children Partnership. The form should be used for referrals to the Complex Early Help and Safeguarding Hub via email .
