How to contact your Early Help Hub

To request a Early Help service, you can complete an Early Help Assessment Part 1 form (see in Downloads and Links section) and return it by secure email or post.
The screening teams in Early Help services respond to requests for a service about a child or young person. Screening workers will:

  • provide advice and guidance to other professionals
  • identify whether a family can be supported through existing local services, if further support is needed or a more detailed assessment is required
  • process early help part assessment part 1 forms for consideration at early help gateway meetings
  • identify any immediate Child Protection concerns that may need a social work assessment
  • respond to requests for a service from Social Care for a family

However, if the needs of the family are more complex, you should complete a Family CAF /early help assessment. If you're unsure, contact the Early Help services for further guidance on how to request a service.
