When might a family need Early Help?
It could be that a family is worried about their child’s health, development or behaviour, or perhaps because they are caring for a disabled child. Maybe the family are affected by family relationships, drugs or alcohol or they are experiencing personal distress or anxiety, financial or housing problems.
By getting help from the right services at the right time, and as early in a child’s life as possible, we can prevent or reduce potential problems for children as they grow up.
If you are struggling with any of the above please call into school and arrange a meeting with me.Alternatively you can contact Early Help by clicking here http://dscp.org.uk/professionals/early-help
