Service Tiers


A Tiered Approach to Service Provision

The CYPP has adopted a common framework for the mapping of service provision for children and young people which is related to their level of need, this has resulted in four levels or tiers:

  1. Universal services - Services which are available to meet a range and level of needs that most children and young people require.
  2. Targeted services - Services which provide extra help for those with additional needs which usually supplement continued access to universal services.
  3. Referred services - Services which require an assessed programme of support provided by providers with particular skills in meeting higher levels of additional needs.
  4. Specialist services - Services which require an assessed programme of specialist support services for children and young people with complex needs.
