What is ‘Good’ Early Help?
A definition of good early help practice has been agreed by the Executive Support Group of NSCB. The attached definition sets out what good practice in early help assessment, support and intervention should look like and has recommendations across a number of areas including the identification of needs; holistic assessment; outcomes-based intervention; Team Around the Family reviews and management oversight.
The definition document is for use by: Professionals and practitioners involved in delivering Early Help support and interventions; Early Help Co-ordinators when providing advice and guidance; Partners taking the lead professional role when cases are stepped down from Social Care and in addition, it will also be sent out with any MASH letters that recommend Early Help.
