Early Help

Our Early Help services provide targeted support to children, young people and families at the earliest point of identified need. The aims of early help are to support families to support themselves, to prevent problems escalating and to reduce the numbers needing statutory interventions.

From 1 April 2017 previous versions of Early Help Assessments (also referred to as CAF) will be replaced by a new suite of paperwork.

Advice and guidance about how and when to use the paperwork, or on any other aspect of early help and intervention, can be obtained from the Early Help Advice and Allocations Team on 0191 561 4084, or by emailing us at EHAAT@togetherforchildren.org.uk
