Early Help Partnership Information
Early Help is a community of services supporting families to build resilience and improve lives. Our vision is that every child and family is happy and healthy and has the opportunity to flourish in a cohesive community.
When a young person is developing and growing up, this is a crucial opportunity to provide them with the skills and support they need. It is much more difficult if they have dropped out of school, become involved with youth crime or developed a serious mental health problem.
Early intervention involves identifying children and families that may be at risk of running into difficulties and providing timely and effective support.
We want every family to develop an cycle of positive parenting between generations, relationships and behaviour.
Within Westminster Early Help is made up of:
- Three Family Hubs that will support families with children across the age spectrum from 0 to 19. As well as a physical building, the hubs will be a network of providers working across a given area.
- An early help partnership around each hub consisting of organisations in a given local area who commit to developing a shared approach through joint sharing of information, assessments, meeting processes and importantly their resources. In effect this will be a ‘team around’ a hubs.
