Early Help is a way of getting extra support when needed. Our integrated 0-19 (25 with SEND) service aims to help families when difficulties first begin so that we can support them with finding solutions quickly. We will provide support through a variety of community-based settings including children’s centres and schools as well as in the family home.  Early help means responding promptly if a child is at immediate risk of harm (or has other significant or complex needs) as much as it means responding to a need which only requires advice or guidance.
