The Early Help Team gives support to families in the early years of a child’s life or as family problems begin to develop.

The service takes referrals directly from the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH). The MASH is the single point of contact for all concerns regarding children and young people in Southampton.

Our Early Help Teams are multi-agency, skilled workers from many different services and backgrounds including:

  • Social Workers
  • Health Visitors
  • School Nurses
  • Education Welfare Officers
  • Family Engagement Workers
  • Youth Engagement Workers

Early Help includes the successful Families Matter Programme.
