Everybody at Dudley Wood wants to support you and your child where problems are emerging for children, young people and their families. Dudley Borough Council offers Early help support - this may be provided at any point in a child or young person’s life. The sooner the family receives the support, the sooner they are able to improve their situation and prevent the need for prolonged support.
Early Help is here to find out what is working well for families and what areas they might be worried about; it can help to build on families’ strengths and identify any needs where support might be needed. It is an approach that brings people together from different teams and services who work together with the whole family. The main focus is to improve outcomes for children.
The type of things that Early Help can support you with include:
Early Help can give you the tools to solve challenges or problems you are experiencing with help from others where needed.
You can talk with someone who you’re familiar with - a teacher, health professional or support worker who might be able to help.
You can also contact your local Family Centre and ask to speak to a Duty Worker who will be able to provide lots of advice around Early Help and how it might be able to support you.
