What is early help and family support? 

If you are experiencing difficulties in your family or are worried about your children, there are people who can offer help and support. Difficulties could be: 

  • Mental health problems 
  • Domestic abuse at home 
  • Drug or alcohol dependency 
  • Your child not going to school 
  • Struggling as a lone parent 
  • Debt problems 
  • Housing problems 

If you need more help than your usual support network – for example your health visitor, child’s school, doctor or the Early Childhood and Family Service (ECFS) – the family support process can help.
