Support for keyworkers and lead professionals helping families with employment or money worries.

1 Helping families get into or back to work

The Integrated Prevention and Earliest Help Service (IPEH) helps people to fulfil their aspirations, which often include returning to work or starting a career.

The Think Family Employment Advisers provide both support and consultation to keyworkers in West Sussex when a family with an early help plan has been identified as requiring support in matters around employment.

You can also find information about voluntary roles for parents of 0-11 year olds thinking about returning to work.
