Early help for children, young people and families

We provide help and support to children, young people and their families from before birth up to the age of 19 (or 25 if they have special educations needs or a disability).

All families face challenges and sometimes need support. Early Help is about providing this support as soon as possible to tackle difficulties for children, young people and families before they become more serious. We work with the whole family and the child is at the centre of all we do.

Every family has strengths and Early Help can work with you to build on these. We can involve a range of professionals that will work together so you only have to give your information once.


We are delivering reduced face to face services and a range of virtual services.

Our 0-19 Practitioners are maintaining contact with the children, young people and families through Skype / FaceTime / WhatsApp / and telephone.

If you have any queries, please contact your 0-19 practitioner or your local hub.
