Everyone needs some help & support at different times in their lives.
Through consultation with families, children and young people and professionals the Early Help Partnership has develop an Early Help strategy. The Partnership and its many partners have developed an action plan to improve the health and wellbeing of families living in Telford & Wrekin.
Families will be engaged in improving their own health and wellbeing; having an awareness of the actions they can take to help themselves and their family to achieve their full potential.
They will recognise the early warning signs of problems – knowing how and when to seek additional help and support. Families will be supported by local networks, families, friends and services in their community to help them in their day-to-day lives and at difficult times.
The Early Help programme offers every family a programme that can be delivered through multi agency working and importantly includes key life points when interventions will have a greater impact. The universal reach of the programme provides a valuable opportunity to identify families in need of additional support and children at risk of poor outcomes around social well-being and readiness for learning.
Our Early Help approach has a strong focus on prevention and wide reach. In addition to closer working with education we have a partnership commitment to build capacity within our communities as we work towards our vision of a longer term model of community self help and self sufficiency including volunteering of local people.
