Integrated Early Help Service

In Wokingham, our Integrated Early Help service provide whole-family and group-based support to children, young people, and their parents/carers who have been assessed as needing support than universal services provide.

We are based in Children’s Centres and Wokingham and our skilled staff work in community-based centres, schools, and family homes to ensure support is accessible. 

We use a solution-focused, strength-based approach to help families and sometimes other professionals identify what is working well for the family and agree on the areas that need to change. We will agree on a time-limited support plan to ensure our interventions help people make positive changes in their lives. 

Our Youth Offending Service provides early help support to reduce the risk of exploitation and offending behaviour amongst young people as well as delivering post-court interventions. 

Our children’s centres and health visitors work closely together to provide universal health visiting support and targeted whole-family support for families with children under 5. Support with accessing entitlements and benefits, including 2-year funding grant is also available. 

Visit our health services at children's centres page for more details.

Our targeted approach helps to break the cycle of families being dependent on services by increasing resilience in children and families and promoting the use of community-based support.
