Early Help Assessment

Completing the Early Help Assessment will help to:
  • Provide a structure for recording and sharing information, with consent
  • Involve other services to improve the outcomes for the child or young person
  • Address concerns about a child or young person’s well-being in more than one area
  • Provide a common form of assessment which will be familiar across children and young people’s services
  • Reduce duplication for practitioners
This will result in:
  • Earlier and holistic identification of the child or young person’s needs
  • Facilitation of better joint working with the parent or carer before the child or young person’s needs escalate
  • Reducing multiple assessments for young people and their families
