Early Help & Parent Support

What is Early Help?


Early Help means providing help for children, young people and families as soon as problems start to emerge or where it is likely that issues will impact negatively on children’s outcomes.

Early Help


  • Is for children of all ages and not just the very young.

  • Can be very effective in supporting a child, young person and/or their family to step down from statutory services as well as preventing the escalation of issues.

  • Is important because there is clear evidence that it results in better outcomes for children.

Lancashire County Council recognises that Early Help is a term that describes much of the everyday work of schools.
