Important Information: New number for Children's Practitioner Advice Line

Coming Soon . . . Gloucestershire Children's Services Portal for completing the MARF

Gloucestershire County Council have been working with a software provider called Liquid Logic to develop a new online children’s portal. The portal will enable professionals to complete the MARF form online, sending information directly to the front door team.

After holding a number of engagement sessions, it has been recognised that the portal needs more development to meet the requirements of professionals. Based on all feedback received, further changes will be made to ensure the portal works for everyone, improving the process for referring children and young people into the front door team. This means the portal is likely to be delayed until early 2018. Further updates will be provided as they become available

    Revised Levels of Intervention Guidance

    Levels of Intervention act as a guide to professional decision making and are there to ensure that children, young people and families are able to access the right support to improve life chances and keep children and young people safe. They should not be seen as a barrier but a clear continuum across the levels of need and appropriate support to meet that need.
