Early Help and Family Engagement - Information for Professionals

Early Help

In Early Help, we recognise the crucial role that all family members and professionals can play when families face difficulties and that this can impact a child or young person's experiences and achievements. Our teams provide intense, focused support when problems first emerge. The right Early Help service at the right time can reduce or prevent specific problems from getting worse or becoming deep seated or entrenched.

The Early Help Assessment form will help practitioners assess needs at an early stage and enable them to work with children, young people and families together with other professionals and agencies to best meet these needs.
