Early Help Offer
Early Help is about working with partners to help children, young people and families deal with issues as early as possible; providing information, advice and services at the right time; supporting them to resolve their concerns as needs emerge.
The Early Help Offer describes the type of early support that is available to a child or young person whose needs are not being met by routine universal services. However, their needs also do not meet the threshold for a specialist service such as Children’s Social Care.
