- evaluate the level of strengths and difficulties in the safeguarding context using the domains and dimensions of the Assessment Framework triangle
- assess the level of harm or likelihood of harm to the child, and create a profile of harm
- make a systemic analysis of the factors and processes leading to harm as well as maintaining protective and resilience factors
- assess and analyse the risks of re-abuse or likelihood of future harm to the child or young person and the prospects for successful intervention.
