Early help for families
There will be times when you and your family need support or when you are not sure how to make things better. There are a group of services in Hull collectively known as Early Help who can support you at these times and make problems easier to understand and quicker to solve.
How we will help you
When a member of the family has a problem, it generally has an impact on the whole family. We will work to support everyone in order to improve the situation.
With your consent, a lead practitioner will speak to you about you and your family. You will then complete the Early Help Assessment together.
Please see the below guidance document, which details the next steps of the Early Help process -
