Early Help Support

The purpose of Early Help Assessment is a whole family assessment which helps to determine the needs of all family members and therefore, what is required to help the family meet those needs. The Early help brings together all professionals who are supporting the family so they can work collaboratively to provide the best support to the child and family.

If you feel that you may require additional support and an Early Help Assessment may be needed please speak to a member of the Care Guidance and Support Team on 01912630202
