Early help

Welcome to Early help

Early help means taking action to support a child, young person or their family as soon as a problem emerges. It can be required at any stage in a child's life, from pre-birth to adulthood, and applies to any problem or need that the family can't deal with alone.

Whether you're an early help professional, a concerned parent or a young person looking for advice, you'll find all the information you need on these pages.
