Early Help and Family Hubs

Worried about a child?

Early Help and Family Hubs are a way of getting extra support when needed. Our integrated 0-19 (25 with SEND) service aims to help families when difficulties first begin so that we can support them with finding solutions quickly. We will provide free support through a variety of community-based settings including family hubs and schools as well as in the family home.  Early help and family hubs mean responding promptly if a child is at immediate risk of harm (or has other significant or complex needs) as much as it means responding to a need which only requires advice or guidance.
