Early Help in Warrington

Early help means taking action to support a child, young person and their family early on when a situation emerges. It can be required at any stage in a child’s life from pre-birth through to adulthood and applies to any situation or need that the family cannot deal with or meet on its own.  Early Help is a strength-based approach enabling families to develop the skills to prevent issues from getting worse by offering the right support at the right time.

Any professional working with a family, such as those based in schools, health services, or in voluntary sector organisations, can offer early help services by responding to identified needs in order to offer advice, support and intervention. Early help is provided to prevent or reduce the need for statutory or social care interventions wherever possible.

We want the services supporting children and families to work much more closely together, forging lasting and meaningful relationships that improve the lives of the children of Warrington in the short, medium and long term, whilst enabling families to develop skills to be independent and feel empowered.
