Early Help


The new Early Help delivery model has been developed through our multiagency Children Trust Partnership, and came into effect on Monday 7 October 2019. 

  • There are 3 new locality Early Help teams based in Bury, Radcliffe and Whitefield and support all five neighbourhoods

  • The teams are working with children and young people, age 0-19, and their families

  • The teams are linked to the schools, so that every school in the borough has an Early Help contact

  • Similar pathways to support are being developed for pre-school children and post-school

  • The Early Help teams link with partner organisations to ensure a joined up approach

  • A new Early Help assessment, the Story So Far, replaces the previous Early Help Family Support Plan and is already being successfully used by schools and other agencies
