Early Help

What is Early Help?

‘Early Help means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life, from the foundation years through to the teenage years. Early Help can also prevent further problems arising’ 

(HM Government: Working Together to Safeguard Children, July 2018:p12).

Children and Families Newcastle is the name of our collaborative approach across all services working with children, young people and families in Newcastle. It is a ‘system’, not a service that you can refer to. The system brings together universal and targeted services into an integrated support offer.
