Early Help is the response made when a professional identifies unmet needs with a child/family and works with other agencies to meet those needs.

At this level of need an Early Help Assessment - Signs of Well-being and Success (EHA) should be completed with the child and family to identify, what is working well, what the worries are and what wellbeing and success would look like. 

A clear plan will be developed by the agencies with the family that is SMART and is focused on what success will look like for the child/ren.

The completion of an EHA would trigger a response from different agencies.  A date should be set for a Team Around the Family (TAF) meeting, in order to identify a coordinator, agree the plan and which agency would work to achieve each of the wellbeing goals.
