When a child/young person/family needs something extra, Early Help is the initial response offered by all services in contact with children, young people and families. This builds an understanding to address extra needs and prevent situations from getting more difficult for children and young people. The aim of Early Help is to build on people’s capacity and resources to manage their own dilemmas, resolve their own difficulties and prevent further problems in the future. Early Help is not a designated team it is the way that EVERYONE works together to support the needs of families.
In September 2018, there were 5 Early Help Roadshows held across Devon. For those of you who could not attend, a recording of the Exeter afternoon event has been made available here.
