South Tyneside Safeguarding Adults Thresholds Guidance Tool (2023)

The guidance tool supports practitioners, partners and providers, working within the adult sector, to report and respond to concerns at the appropriate level and to have a consistency of approach across agencies.

The guidance should be used to:

  • Help determine a consistent approach to identifying what concerns may require a response under the safeguarding process.
  • Support decision making when alternative processes should be used.

The guidance is not a substitute for professional judgement but should be used to assist decision making and to support professional judgement.
