What are Universal, Targeted and Specialist provision for children, young people and their families?

What is universal provision?
These will often be services that are available to all children and young people, and their families, in Walsall. They can be accessed without needing any specialist resources or assessment.

What is targeted provision?
These are services for children and young people who may need additional support to access services, or may need groups or services that are specifically designed to meet their needs. Some targeted provision can be accessed directly with or without an assessment.

What is specialist provision?
These are services for children and young people with severe and / or complex needs who are likely to require even more support than is available either through universal or targeted services. These services will require an assessment of need.
