Getting Help

Early Help Assessments

Typically, the first step when getting help is for an Early Help Assessment to be completed. This is a simple step and will help you to identify your family's strengths and what you would like to be different. It also acts as a summary of your family situation, so you don't have to keep repeating yourself to practitioners. 

A plan is then put together using this information to help you achieve the changes you want to make; this is called an Early Help Plan and keeps the children and young person at the centre. The plan pulls together the help you need, even if this is from other area agencies.

The plan will be regularly reviewed with you, your family and those working to help ensure you are getting the right support and that you are making progress towards your goals.
