Walsall 0 -19s Early Help 

Our partnership

We work with families and children, providing family support packages following referrals from the local authority. After assessing their needs, we develop individual, tailored package of care for each family that seeks to address their needs and prevent their situation worsening.

Our interventions aim to improve the health and wellbeing of families by supporting them to develop strategies and the resilience to deal with their difficulties and move forward.

Our Early Help team leads on Early Help assessments and support for young people who have complex needs that require a multi-agency approach. Our Early Help team tracks their progress and monitors their risks and safeguarding needs.

We use local partnerships to provide a richer and broader range of interventions to support the full range of a family’s needs. Working with partners enables us to focus our skills and resources in the most effective way.
