Early Help Support


What is Early Help Support? 

Early Help is the support we offer to potentially vulnerable children, young people and their families. The purpose of Early Help is to put in the right support at the right time so that problems are less likely to escalate to a point where a child becomes vulnerable or in need. Early Help is sustainable so that problems are less likely to occur. 


Early Help does not always mean early years. While research does show that most impact can be made in those crucial first years of a child's life, Early Help can be needed and put in place at any time and any age. 


All children and young people and families in Warwickshire are entitled to receive Early Help. This means offering information, advice, guidance, and support to families as soon as a concern emerges, or seems likely to emerge. 


This is not an additional responsibility for Practitioners but an essential part of the 'day job' for all people working with Children and Families.
