  • To provide a brief overview of the young person's circumstances to help identify potential needs or concerns in order to inform the required level of intervention
  • To support case managers to identify any gaps in information



The form is designed to briefly screen a young person's circumstances with a view to making a decision on the outcome, whether this is with reference to the disposal, the need for a further assessment or level of intervention/support to be offered, either conditionally or voluntarily. 

The screening tool is completed at the initial stage, prior to a full AssetPlus assessment.  Where a voluntary intervention is accepted, a second Youth Caution or Conditional Caution is provided, the AssetPlus assessment is then completed.  



Implementing the Practice:

  • The form is completed by the allocated Case Manager
  • The Case Manager presents the infomation gathered to a panel (which includes an Operational Manager, Early Help, Greater Manchester Police and the Victim Liaison Officer), where the screening is signed off and a plan of support agreed
