The Early Help service
Sometimes families benefit from having a professional network of support around them to provide support. As the name suggests early help is about providing the right support to families, at the right time, before problems get worse.
The support offered by the Southampton City Council Early Help Hub is based on what each family needs and it’s totally voluntary so it only takes place if a family agrees to it.
The team work with the whole family, helping to identify the areas of support needed and pulling a plan together. The team contains multi-agency, skilled workers from many different services and backgrounds including:
- Health Visitors
- School Nurses
- Education Welfare Officers
- Social Workers
- Family Engagement Workers
- Youth Engagement Workers
- Youth Offending Service
Please speak to a DSL if you think your family would benefit from early help.
