Our Early Help partnership is ambitious for the children and young people in Walsall, we are committed to ensuring children and young people have the best possible start, are safe from harm, happy and healthy where they will thrive emotionally, physically, mentally and achieve their potential.
Everyone needs a little help at times, if you’re worried about a child or young person, or want to make changes in your life, Walsall Early Help partnership is here to support you.
Early Help is the support we give to children, young people and their families when they need extra help with a whole range of individual, social, health and education concerns.
Support is provided to the ‘whole family’ to ensure the right help at the right time is available and as a partnership we work together with families.
Early Help is voluntary and consent from children young people and their families to work with should always be agreed.
Working together as early as possible, regardless of the child or young person’s age can positively improve outcomes.
Early Help is a partnership approach, not a provision, and very much relies on local agencies working together with families. As we like to say:
"Early Help is everybody’s business and responsibility"
