What is Early Help?
Early Help is ANY non statutory service supporting families
"Providing early help is more effective in promoting the welfare of children than reacting later. Early help means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child's life, from the foundation years through to the teenage years. Early help can also prevent further problems arising; for example, if it is provided as part of a child's support plan where a child has returned home to their family from care, or in families where there are emerging parental mental health issues of drug and alcohol misuse."

Leicester City Council has an Early Help Service that is part of the multiagency early help provision.
