Early Help Training

How to Support Children and Families with Early Help Training

The LSCB is running a series of day long workshops in districts to help strengthen the response to families by effective multi-agency working at an Early Help stage of intervention.

The aim of the workshop is to improve the quality of multi-agency working and to result in Early Help Assessment Coordinators feeling more confident in their role.

Key aims of the day are:

  • To understand the Early Help process
  • To effectively work together as a Multi-Agency Team
  • To be able to confidently co-ordinate a Team Around the Family (TAF)
  • To be able to know and access assessment tools to measure risk and impact
  • To be able to evidence the impact of Early Help for the child

We have designed our pathways to promote a whole school approach to support and improving health and wellbeing across the county. They are not designed to be a diagnostic tool but aim to support school staff to access appropriate services for children and young people in a timely way to support their health and mental wellbeing.

The pathways are split into 3 sections based on a traffic light system.

The first section is the universal whole school approach to prevention (in green) and encompasses all the activities you can do in school to achieve good practice.

The early intervention stage (in yellow) is where you will start to see behaviours in pupils that are causing concern. From this there are suggestions of advice you can consider that will support the pupil at this stage.

The targeted support (in red) assists when the behaviours are escalating and guidance and links to external support is clearly indicated.
