Early Help Offer

The Early Help Offer (the Offer) is an approach not a service. It respects every family’s right to access information to help manage their own lives successfully, whilst guiding them to seek support from appropriate sources. Help can then be agreed as soon as concerns start to emerge. The ‘Offer’ is for all children, as issues may arise at any point in a child or young person’s life. It includes both universal and targeted /specialist services, to reduce or prevent concerns from growing or staying unresolved.

  • Help is there when parents, children and young people need it ‘nipping problems in the bud’.
  • Together we will find a way forward that is right for everyone – there is a choice of help and it will be easy to access.
  • Families are at the centre of everything we do – they will only have to tell us their story once.
  • We operate an open door policy and are always willing to listen to concerns that affect any aspect of family life.
  • We will be pro-active with families who may not want support but may need it – and we will continue to support families until they no longer need our help.
  • The school provides a neutral place where the child feels it is safe to talk; sensitivity to any disclosure is vital. Staff listen carefully to what the child is saying, treat it seriously and value what they say.

Gloucestershire County Council provide a wide range of information, self help, support and services available for all aspects of family life ranging from free universal support options or services, which everyone can access, to targeted support for times when specialist advice is needed. For more information on help and support available, please see the Glosfamilies Directory website.
