Support with family life (early help)

How it works

To help and support you and keep you informed, one person will be identified as the 'lead'. This person will be chosen by you and the support team.

The 'lead' will be the main contact and will keep you informed with what's happening. They will listen to your views and support you during the process. This is the person you can call if you have any queries or are unhappy about anything.

Step 1: Talking with you

You and a support officer will sit and complete an Early Help assessment.

This will identify any help or support for you and your family. The completed form means that you don't have to repeat your story to different support people.

Step 2: The plan

A one-to-one meeting will be arranged for you and support workers.

At this meeting, what kind of support available to you is discussed and a plan of how to help is agreed. This will outline who does what and when.

Step 3: The review

A group meeting with you and support workers will be held to discuss how things are going and if anything needs to change. This will continue as long as needed, making sure the plan is suitable for you and your family.

You will be involved every step of the way.
