Targeted Early Help Offer

In Westminster, the Targeted Early Help service works with young people and their families who may require additional support. This might be in times when you have difficulties at school or home for example.

Every family has a named worker and they will be available to support you too - this person is called an Early Help Family Practitioner. The Early Help Family Practitioner will meet with you and your family regularly (weekly, or sometimes more often), either in person on by phone or video call.

They will also arrange a meeting with your family and other professionals who already work with you or who might be able to help. This meeting is called a Team Around the Family (TAF) meeting.

The team will work with you and your family to make changes to areas of your life which are causing you worries or problems. Together, you will make a plan of how you can achieve your goals.

More information on the Early Help Service as well as information on other services for families can be found on the Family Information Service website which provides free, impartial information for young people and parents and carers of children and young people aged up to 19 (up to 25 years for those with additional needs). You can also find out more information over the phone by calling 020 7641 7929.
