Early Help means taking action to support a child, young person or their family early in the life of a problem, as soon as it emerges. It can be required at any stage in a child’s life from pre-birth to adulthood, and applies to any problem or need that the family cannot deal with or meet on their own. It also applies to all children and young people, with any form of need.
If parents feel the family require a more targeted approach, you can self-refer via a Family Connect form attached to your locality. The Locality will be able to advise you on what support is available. This will be done either by giving advice, signposting to services and community support or linking to early help workers within the locality – Birmingham Children’s Partnership – Resources | Birmingham Children’s Partnership – Resources | Birmingham City Council
