Early Help

Early Help

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.
