About Early Help

Early Help is for individuals, households and families that need support to stop issues getting worse or reaching crisis point. The Early Help team works with people to develop skills to be more independent and self-reliant so that they are better able to help themselves. We have an assessment tool that helps families and workers to understand needs, where their strengths are, and where they may need help and support to make changes in their lives.
