Guidance for families on where to go for support.

Where to go for help

The information on this page is for families that feel they need support. Guidance for professionals can be found in our early help section.

There are a number of different ways your family can find help:

If you want help with a few things at the same time, an Early Help Plan may be put together for you by the professionals supporting you. This makes it easier to know what needs to happen and you can also see how much progress you are making.

The information you and your family provide may be shared, only with your consent. Workers who need to know about your family will have the information shared with them.

However, if a child or other person is considered to be at risk of significant harm, people working with you will have a duty of care to share the information with the relevant services. You can discuss this further with those who are supporting your family.

All information you provide is dealt with professionally and stored securely in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
