Children & Families: Early Help provides support for a family when a need is identified at any point in a child’s life. We work across all agencies and partners and we aim to deliver the right support, at the right time and in the right place to families.

The following group activities will be available to meet local need. Most of these programmes are referral-only. Please talk to any practitioner if you would like you, your child and/or a family member to be referred onto any of the activities. The practitioner will contact us to add your name and details onto our waiting lists and you will then be contacted.
