Early Help Service referrals

Referrals are received through our Duty, Triage, and Assessment team (DTA) our locality Social Work teams, and through the Courts where it is felt that Early Help Interventions can reduce the risks associated with:

  • Harm, neglect and social isolation
  • Children going missing from home
  • Exclusion from school 
  • Involvement in anti-social behaviour and offending
  • Child exploitation
  • Family breakdown/Edge of care

Referrals for Early Help support are discussed in a weekly Multi-Agency Early Help Hub where other specialist or community-based support may be offered to families.
