Early Help

Early Help is a way of thinking and working together between services with families that have additional or more complex needs.

View the video below for an animation of the Early Help Service:

Early help is preventative, by providing support to families when a need is identified or as soon as a problem emerges at any point in a child’s life, from conception, through childhood and into adolescence. It can also prevent further problems arising by building resilience with families to find their own solutions in the future.  

It should not be seen as a specific service, but any service, and crucially how services work collectively through tailored support packages for specific needs in individual families.

If you need information or advice about a child or young person before completing the form, call Early Help from 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, on 01302 734110. Doncaster’s Families Information Service provides access to a range of services for universal or more complex needs.  You can use this directory of services and information in your work with families. Always call 999 if someone is in immediate danger.
