Getting Risk Support

The aim of specifying a category of Getting Risk Support is for all partners to be clear that what is being provided is managing risk ONLY.

It is important to note that there are likely to be risk management aspects in all groupings. However, in the context of high concerns but lack of therapeutic progress for those in this group, risk management is the sole focus.

Children or young people in this grouping may have some or many of the difficulties outlined in Getting Help or Getting More Help above BUT, despite extensive input, they or their family are currently unable to make use of help, more help or advice AND they remain a risk to self or others.

Children, young people and families in this grouping are likely to have contact with multiple-agency input such as from social services and youth justice.

This grouping comprises those children, young people and families who are currently unable to benefit from evidence-based treatment but remain a significant concern and risk.

This group might include children and young people who routinely go into crisis but are not able to make use of help offered, or where help offered has not been able to make a difference; who self-harm; or who have emerging personality disorders or ongoing issues that have not yet responded to interventions.
