Early Help Information

Who to Contact in School for Support
What is Early Help? 
Early help, also known as early intervention, is support given to a family when a problem first emerges. It can be provided at any stage in a child or young person's life. Early help services can be delivered to parents, children or whole families, but their main focus is to improve outcomes for children. For example, services may help parents who are living in challenging circumstances provide a safe and loving environment for their child. Or, if a child is displaying risk-taking behaviour, early help practitioners might work with the child and their parents to find out the reasons for the child's behaviour and put strategies in place to help keep them safe.
What is an Early Help Assessment? 
An Early Help Assessment is an assessment that helps a family understand what is going well for them and what their needs and worries are. It helps professionals identify areas that families would like to improve. An Early Help Assessment includes everyone who is in a family including unborn babies. It’s important that everyone in a family has their voice heard and are supported. An Early Help Assessment can include any family or household member, even if they do not have Parental Responsibility or play a caring role for a child in the home. Significant others can also be included if required.
