Multi-agency Escalation Policy

 The Escalation Policy explains how concerns and cases should be escalated to the Lambeth Safeguarding Children Partnership (LSCP) and how any issues with the application of thresholds should be resolved. It is for use by all partners in relation to inter-agency issues, so the same timescales and escalation period should apply across all agencies (although it should be noted that the structural hierarchies may be slightly different in different organisations).
