Support and Advice for Families

Early Help

Early help is provided to children, young people and families who are:

  • struggling
  • in need of additional support
  • at a higher than average risk of experiencing problems

Early help services aim to prevent or resolve issues before they become more serious and require specialist support. The Isle of Wight Children and Young People’s Strategic partnership recognises that the best outcomes are achieved when a combination of services work together. This is to ensure that the whole family are able to work towards better life chances of their children.

Further information for this service can now be found on our new beta website.
