Early Help

Early Help

Hi, my name is Kate Salt and I am your schools link worker on behalf of the early help family support team based in Wath and covering the Swinton area.

Early Help is: A designated service offering advice, support and interventions for families with a wide variance of needs. The aims of Early Help are to support families to support themselves, to prevent problems escalating and to reduce the number of families needing Social Care intervention.

We can help you:

  • If you are worried about a child’s health, development or behavior
  • If you are a child carer or young person looking to find training or further education
  • If you are a child carer or young person looking for advice on employment or benefits

Maybe your child or your family is, or has been, affected by domestic abuse, drugs, alcohol or crime. Or maybe you’ve had a bereavement which has made things harder.

We can provide help in a child’s early years. We also support children who are missing from school or home and give support when children or young people are involved in risky behavior.

I will be attending the school’s next coffee morning arrange for the 20th March 2020. If you would like to pop along to find out more around how you can access early help and what we can do to support your family then I would be happy to answer any of your questions.
