Early Help Arrangements Incorporating Turnaround
What Are Early Help Arrangements?
The collective terminology for delivering the ‘Early Help Offer’ from each partner In order that organisations and practitioners collaborate effectively, it is vital that every individual working with children and families is aware of the role that they have to play and the role of other professionals. In addition, effective safeguarding requires clear local arrangements for collaboration between professionals and agencies
Early Help Offer The Early Help ‘Offer’ is about delivering a set of agreed arrangements across the Children’s Trust partnership to co-ordinate and provide a range of services that will improve outcomes for children and young people. We will do this through commissioning, signposting and directly delivering services.
