The Early Help Assessment Journey. Support, Resources and Information

The Manchester Early Help Programme Team are here to provide practitioners with information, guidance and a range of training opportunities and access to associated Early Help resources. If you or your agency work with, provide support for or information to children, young people and families, then we are here to support your Early Help Offer.

From 31st March 2022, practitioners, parents and young people will have an improved opportunity to share their feelings about the support they received, as part of our/your Manchester Early Help Approach. We have revised the closure section of the E.H.A form. Access the updated E.H.A form in the forms section below For more information email or the Team Project Officer

Please remember your registered E.H.A is a shared recording of the needs identified following a Strength Based Conversation and the initial S.M.A.R.T plan agreed between you the parent. It is not a referral form.

The Request for Early Help Support form enables professionals to seek support in overcoming challenges associated with progressing an E.H.A. Alternatively you may require support in identifying the right agencies to help meet the identified needs of a family. Access the Request for Early Help Support form in the forms section below 

Helping young people and families to help themselves begins with an understanding of what is important to them. Please see our Early Help information leaflets (below) for parents and teenagers. The leaflets provide families with an initial insight into Early Help. More importantly they provide an opportunity for individuals, to begin to explore the process of a holistic assessment for themselves.

If you require any of our current products (September 2021 onwards) in a more accessible format, then please email us. Please use this link to view our Accessibility Statement
