Early Help strategy
The Early Help Strategy plays a key role in securing outcomes set out in Herefordshire's Children and Young People's Plan 2015-2018. It also contributes to meeting the commitments of the Families First programme and the delivery of Herefordshire's Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
The Early Help Strategy is being developed at a time of increased financial pressures on all agencies and organisations. This includes early year's settings, schools, colleges, NHS, public and mental health services, police as well as the council. At the same time there is an increased pressure on resources, with higher numbers entering health and social care services.
