Early help strategy

Early Help means providing help for children and families as soon as problems start to emerge or when there is a strong likelihood that problems will emerge in the future. Herefordshire's Early Help is therefore about providing services at the right time to meet a family's needs and to keep them in control of resolving their issues and problems, to reinforce and develop the families' own skills to determine their future, reducing poor outcomes and inequalities. Although research shows that the most impact can be made during a child's early years, Early Help is not just for very young children and we understand that problems may emerge at any point throughout childhood and adolescence.
