Continuum of Need

The West Cheshire Continuum of Need was revised and relaunched in October 2016 and sets out how to access early support, the thresholds for single and multi-agency agency interventions at all levels, and when to consider a referral for a social care led ‘single assessment’. If you click on the interactive Continuum of Need below, you will be able to access further information about each of the Levels, what action should be taken and what support services are available within each level of need.

Please click on the levels to reveal further information.
