‘Early Help’ means providing help for children, young people and families as soon as concerns start to emerge or where it is likely that issues will impact negatively on children’s outcomes.
- Is for children of all ages and not just the very young
- Can be very effective in supporting a child, young person and/or their family to step down from statutory services as well as preventing the escalation of issues
- Is important because there is clear evidence that it results in better outcomes from children
