Early help

"Early help means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life, from foundation years through to teenage years." - Working Together to Safeguard Children, HM Government, March 2015

Early Help is about working with children, young people and families to identify and address problems before they escalate.

It includes services that are available to all families as well as services for more vulnerable families who need a greater level of support.
