Dudley’s Early Help Strategy

Providing early help is more effective in promoting the welfare of children than reacting later.

Early help means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life. Early help can also prevent further problems from arising.

Effective early help relies upon local organisations and agencies working together to identify children and families who would benefit from early help and to undertake an assessment of the need for early help.

For more information on Early Help please view the Dudley Early Help page, or speak to a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
