What is Early Help?
Early Help means Rotherham services working together to get you the right services at the right time. Everyone faces problems in their lives and when they do most people can find the support they need from services such as schools, doctors, health visitors, and children's centres.
However when you, your family or a young person's problems start building up or become more complicated it can be harder to cope. When this happens it's important that you can find the best way forward as soon as possible before things get worse.
There is a lot of information, groups and agencies available and understanding which ones are right for you can be confusing and sometimes scary.
What if my problems are more serious?
If a worker or adviser thinks you or your family need more direct support they may contact the Early Help Assessment Team. This team will work with you and your family to put in place a package of support involving all the services you agree are right for you and help you to take back control of your problems.
If at any time, you or a worker feel that a child or young person is at significant risk of harm, please contact children's social services on 01709 823987.
