What is early help?
Early help means providing support as soon as a problem appears, to stop it from getting worse. This could be at any point in a child's life, from birth to the teenage years. Anyone can provide early help – you don't need to be an expert professional. Early help is not about passing the issue on to an expert, but thinking about what is the best support you can offer. You can provide effective support by:
working with other people who could help
finding out about specialist agencies who could help
filling out an Early Help Assessment with the person you are helping
contacting Children's Social Care if you think the problem is more serious
There is a lot of information and advice on the Advice, Care, Health and Support pages as well as detail of local services that can provide support for children, young people and families.
