Our aim is for every child to be safe, healthy and to achieve the best possible outcomes. BCP Council Early Help teams aim to support children and young people in their learning and development at all stages of their lives through a locality-based approach that includes assessment and family support, early years services, school inclusion services, information advice and guidance to families and a broad range of learning, development and parenting programmes.
Early Help services are designed to be responsive and targeted to children, young people and families, providing the right help at the right time. Our teams are based within the community, working for the community, alongside children (pre-birth to age 19, or up to 25 if a young adult has identified Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities), their families, their support networks and our partners to overcome barriers, build resilience and to improve outcomes.
Contact the Children's First Response MASH if you:
- are worried a child or young person is at risk of, or is being hurt or abused
- know of a child or young person who may be vulnerable without additional help and support
- want to know more about the services available to support children, young people and their families
