Early Help is the support we give to children, young people and their families when they need help with individual, social, health and education concerns. If you’re worried about a child or young person, or want to make changes in your life, we are here to support you.
We are committed to ensuring children and young people in Walsall:
- have the best possible start
- are safe from harm
- are happy and healthy
- thrive emotionally, physically, mentally
- achieve their potential
We support the whole family to make sure the right help is available at the right time. Early Help is a partnership approach, not a provision. It relies on local agencies working together with families. Working together as early as possible, regardless of the child or young person’s age can positively improve outcomes.
Early Help is voluntary. We will always agree consent from children young people and their families.
As we like to say:
"Early Help is everybody’s business and responsibility"
