Early help is about providing support to potentially vulnerable children, young people and their families as soon as problems begin to emerge or when there is a strong likelihood that problems will start in the future. It is also about providing support at any and every stage of a child's life; pre-birth, during pregnancy, childhood or adolescence.
Children and families are entitled to early help if and when they need it. It may also be provided through an increase in the levels of universal services, or services provided or commissioned in localities.
