Early Help (also known as Early Intervention) means taking action early in the life of a problem, or as soon as it emerges, to support a child, young person or their family. Early Help support requires agencies to work together to ensure a child and their family receive the support that they require in a timely manner to meet all of their needs.
Widespread evidence shows it is better to identify and deal with problems early rather than respond when difficulties have emerged.
