Other support available
Early Help support
Before making a referral, you should consider what support your agency can provide and whether Early Help support is appropriate. Please contact 01926 414144 if you need to find out if Early Help is the right option.
Early Help Single Assessments
An Early Help Single Assessment will help identify where a family needs help. It is voluntary, and the family must consent to any support given.
If there is an Early Help Single Assessment already in place, please liaise with your Early Help officer in the community. Call 01926 414147 to find your local officer.
Working with the family
The Family Information Service (FIS) may be able to help if a child or family needs more help then you can offer. They can provide information on the range of services available in your area.
Special Educational Needs (SEN) support at nursery, school or college
Getting a social care or carer’s assessment
Most children can be supported through Early Help. Some children may also require a social care assessment. Please call 01926 414144 to request a social care assessment.
If you are a carer you can request a carer’s assessment to see what support is available to you.
