Call 999 if it is an emergency and the child is in immediate danger
You might feel that a child is not at risk of harm at the moment but their family needs more support to fully meet the child’s needs and prevent any issues from increasing. Our Early Help Hub can help with this.
What is early help?
Sometimes families benefit from having a professional network of support around them to help with things like their family’s health, getting into work and improving school attendance. The support we offer through our Early Help Hub is based on what each family needs and it’s totally voluntary so it only takes place if the family agree to it.
The team work with the whole family, helping to identify the areas of support needed and pulling a plan together. The team contains multi-agency, skilled workers from many different services and backgrounds including:
•Education Welfare Officers
The support offered by our Early Help Hub includes the successful Families Matter programme, which is Southampton’s response to the Government’s Troubled Families agenda. Find out about the Families Matter programme.
