Continuum of Need

The Continuum of Need is a collaborative approach to Safeguarding support that drives our shared ambition of the right help, at the right time from the right service and, importantly, from the right person, whilst always acting in the best interests of the child.


It has been developed to help those who work or volunteer with children and families across the Wakefield District with making decisions about how to best provide support.


This approach is aligned to the district’s Wakefield Families Together model, where a child and their family receive the right help, at the right time, from the right service, and importantly, from the right person, whilst always acting in the best interests of a child.



We have several detailed policies to keep our children safe, and we also recommend some other organisations who may be able to help with any concerns - these policies can be found on our policies page.
