Assessment of risk
Low Level Risk
A low level risk would be one where no further action needs to be taken at the current time or an action needs to be noted for checking on the next visit. This would include incidents such as:
Client describing loneliness and mild depression
Medium Level Risk
This is where an action or incident is noted and discussed with the client and an action needs to be taken within a month of the assessment. Scheme Support Officer will check up on the client in one month. This would be an incident such as:
Client advises they have considered using drugs or alcohol to ease their depression.
High Level Risk
If a client is identified as high risk there will be an immediate and urgent action to take. This will need to be dealt with as a priority and may include liaising with other agencies to enable to risk to be reduced. For example: Scheme Support Officer discovers the client has tried to harm himself or herself or take their own life.
This assessment is to ensure that the safety of the Scheme Support Officer and Client is maintained whilst the support service is carried out.

If any major changes a new Support Plan must be completed.
My Support Plan has been reviewed by me and the Scheme Support Officer and I agree with its contents, which includes the individual risk assessment.
In order to ensure needs and support planning are client focused, it is your choice whether your support plan is reviewed on a 6 monthly or annual basis.
Please indicate your review choice. (Please remember you can ask us to review your Support Plan at any time).
