Early Help logo

'Early Help' means providing effective support to children and young people as soon as needs start to be identified, and to bring about change to prevent these from escalating and leading to poor outcomes. Early Help may occur at any point when needs arise, from pregnancy through to the teenage years and at any stage in adulthood.
