Working in early help

What we do

Our Early Help services are about taking action as soon as possible to help families with children to tackle their problems. By intervening early, we can combat any issues that may grow worse with time and become unmanageable later.

Without early help, family problems can become more complex and serious. This can sometimes lead to child safety concerns and the need for statutory children’s social care intervention.

Our 0–19 Early Help Service offers earlier, coordinated and more effective support to whole families when the risks to the children are increasing. This includes:

  • family keyworkers to work in partnership with families over a period of time to address challenges
  • Early Years and parenting support, and
  • youth workers.

To help assess when is the best time to offer support to a family, we use the Continuum of need.
