Liverpool Early Help Hubs

There are 3 Locality Early Help Hubs in the City. They share, as closely as possible, their boundaries with other services (e.g. Clinical Commissioning Groups, Adult Services, Social Care Teams, Health Visitor Neighborhoods) in order to encourages effective multi-agency working.

Early Help will be happening naturally, in the course of day to day business, where services are working with families and identify the need for multi-agency interventions. Those practitioners identifying the need for multi-agency support will undertake an EHAT with the family, begin to identify strengths and needs, and begin to co-ordinate a TAF and share information (with consent) with other agencies.

At the first TAF meeting a Lead Professional will be confirmed (agreed by the family), who will continue to co-ordinate support and interventions and by the key contact for the family and ensure interventions are addressing the needs identified and progress is being made.

However, there are occasions when this process requires some help.
Each Hub has a Consultant Social Worker who is available to provide assistance when needed. They can access information and support from a range of partner agencies who are also located in each Hub, which will support the EHAT process and ensure families receive the coordinated support that they need.
Each Locality Hub will be able to:

i)  Receive Pre-EHATs (from agreed services/agencies) and ensure the most appropriate service is engaged to undertake an EHAT.
ii) Receive step-down cases from Social Care to ensure relevant support remains in place (using an EHAT) to continue to support families who need this to prevent concerns/needs re-escalating and needing social care interventions again.
iii)  Give advice to partners on the levels of need guidance and whether a MARF needs to be completed.
iv)  Receive cases from Careline, where MARFs have been submitted, but deemed not to require social care interventions. Services will be advised by Careline that an EHAT is required, and the Early Help Hub will be able to transfer cases to the EHAT Team to 'track' the registration of the EHAT, or follow up those professionals who have not undertaken an EHAT where one has been recommended by Careline.
v)   Support Lead Professionals with advice where EHATs that have become 'stuck' and there is little or no change in improving the outcomes for the child.
vi)  Provide information, advice and support for Lead Professionals in relation to relevant multi-agency support available in the local Hub footprint.
