Accessing support for your family

Sometimes children, young people, adults and families need some additional support. We use the Early Help Assessment (EHA) to assess the needs of your family and make sure you get the help you need as quickly as possible. The process is voluntary, you can choose whether to be involved and you can withdraw from the process at any time. In some situations children / young people can make their own decisions about whether they need an EHA, and who they want to support them.

To find out more about the EHA you can speak to the person who suggested the EHA, another professional who knows you and your family, or contact the Early Help Hub: or call: 01480 376 666 (office hours)
