How can Stronger Families help?
Some of the problems we help children and families with include:
- Drug and alcohol issues
- Domestic abuse
- Mental health issues
- Money and housing problems
- Bereavement (someone dying)
- Relationship problems
- Children's health, development, behaviour, and progress at school
Who can access this support?
All children and families are entitled to Early Help support. You can ask us for support yourself, or you can ask someone else to put you in touch with us, like:
- A teacher at your/your child's school
- Your health visitor
- Your GP
- Nursery staff
- Any other services you might already be working with
What will happen when I ask for this support?
- We'll spend time with you and listen to what is working well, what worries you have and explore what help you think is needed. We do this by completing an early help assessment with you.
- As part of the assessment we'll talk to your child to make sure they understand how they are feeling and ask them if there is anything they want help with.
- We'll work with you to agree an action plan and set up a meeting, bringing services together who are working with you, as well as inviting new services who might also be able to help you.
- We'll ask you if we can share the details of your information with other services who can help you. You can read our privacy notice if you want to know more about how we look after your personal information and share it with people.
- We'll hold review meetings to check what progress is being made.
