Early help is a way of supporting people to avoid problems, or to deal with them before they get worse.

Solihull’s early help strategy set out the vision, principles and the priorities for change in order to develop the delivery of early help within Solihull.

The early help model brings together direct work, community provision and community capacity building across five collaborative areas in a needs-led, flexible and coordinated approach.

The model has been developed to ensure long term sustainability and community empowerment, with an aim for families to be helped at the earliest point, improving children and young people’s life chances and reducing demand for crisis services.
The team is in place and the implementation for children, young people and families has begun.


Do you work with children, young people and families to identify additional needs and carry out early help assessments?

To help with the work that you are doing, would it be beneficial to

  • understand the principles of early help?
  • develop understanding and confidence around family conversations?
  • become confident in using the engagement tool?
  • understand and apply Solihull local thresholds?

If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, you would benefit from attending the LSCB module 1 early help training.
