Continuum of Need Indicators For Support (CONIFS)
This page is for people working with children, young people and families.
The support children, young people and families need when a child is growing up or when things are not going so well is unique to them.
Support does not always have to be from services. It might be better from people around them like family or friends. They might need it to come other organisations or charities.
The information shows how we can understand what is important and what matters to them, and details how departments and organisations can work with each other and develop plans for the right support, at the right time.
There is also information below on how to request Information, Advice and Assistance, and how to escalate concerns when appropriate.
