Early Help Information



What is Early Help?

Early Help means providing help for children, young people and families as soon as problems start to emerge or where it is likely that issues will impact on children’s education and wellbeing

Early Help…

  • is for children of all ages and not just the very young,
  • can be very effective in supporting a child, young person and/or their family 
  • is important because there is clear evidence that it results in better outcomes for children.


Early Help is a term that describes much of the everyday work of schools.


Early Help services should support and strengthen families so that they can thrive.


We follow the Working Well with Children and Families Guidance


Working together we can develop an  Early Help Assessment and Plan using a  family radar process. The family radar is linked to the cycle of change and will help you to identify which areas of support your family need the most. By completing a family radar, we are trying to gather, explore and analyse  information about all aspects of  you child and family life and then to identify areas where change will address support needs and positively impact on you.


Through the Early Help Assessment, Plan, and reviews via Team Around the Family meetings the wider partnership of services can provide families with the right support at the right time.


For example, an  Early Help may include support from Lancashire’s Children and Family Wellbeing Service (CFW) who offer practical support to children, young people, parents/carers and families.

This support can be provided on a whole range of issues which may be affecting individuals or the family and is offered through a network of centres as well as in the community or in the family home.
