Local Assessment Protocol

It is important that all those with worries about a child or young person in North Tyneside have confidence that they will be listened to and their concerns responded to.

North Tyneside Council has produced a document that sets out the arrangements for how this takes place. It is intended to be as clear and simple as possible. The document is about how decisions are made.

The document sets out how the Local Authority and its partners work to decide what is the right help and support to meet the needs of children and young people, the right time to provide it and the right length and the right intensity of it.
