Early Help Hub

Slough Early Help Hub provides targeted family support for families in need of early intervention and prevention services.

One of the first things a family support worker will do is complete an Early Help Assessment (EHA).

An EHA is a tool the team uses to gather as much information as they can about children, young people and their families to help them to understand what support is needed.

To gather the information, they speak to children and young people, parents and professionals who already work with the family members, like teachers. Once they have gathered the information, they work with all family members and relevant professionals to develop an action plan of support.

Children, young people and their families are at the centre of the assessment and the action plan and are continually involved throughout.

What happens next?

Once the action plan is complete, the support identified and agreed will be put in place so the best outcomes for children, young people and their families can be achieved. All professionals will work together with the family and regular meetings will take place to review how the support is going and what else is needed.
