Graded Care Profile Referrals

Graded Care Profile can be used with families where there's a concern about child neglect – whether that's a small concern, or a case where a child or young person is already subject to a child protection plan.

We're working with people across the UK, including those who work in child protection, health, children's services and education, to use the Graded Care Profile to assess possible neglect.

As part of this we're looking at how people use the Graded Care Profile and how effective they feel it is in changing the lives of children and young people.

We're also working with the person who originally developed the tool, Dr Srivastava, to see if there's anything that could be improved to make it easier to use and available to more people.

How to get help from NSPCC services

Sometimes you may be referred to one of our services by someone who already helps you, like a midwife, social worker, teacher or children's centre worker. You can join some of our services yourself, simply by contacting us to see if a place is available.

If you think a service that is available in your area might help you and your family, get in touch to find out more.
