Early Help

The statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018) describes Early Help as: ‘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’. It goes on to say that ‘Providing early help is more effective in promoting the welfare of children than reacting later’.

We work together with other agencies to support children and their families or are in need of early intervention.

Mrs Allen and Mrs Brennan are Sandford Hill’s Early Help champions.
