What is Early Help?
Every family has its ups and downs. Being a parent is hard work and there are no instructions. Sometimes, you or your children may need extra support. This may be before your children are born, when they are very young, or throughout their shcool years. There is nothing to be ashamed of in asking for help. Early Help helps you recognise what's going well for you, where you may benefit from extra help, and who is the best person to work with you and your family to make this happen.
Early Help is availablable for children and young people up to the age of 18 and their families and is entirely voluntary, so if you don't think it is right for yoru child, then you don't have to consent to Early Help.
