Early Help is about families receiving prompt and assertive help when needs are identified, either by families themselves asking for help or professionals having worries or seeing needs before they become problematic. Early Help can include both support to the family in the earliest years of a child’s life and a swift response to the emergence of a problem at any stage later in their lives. A good Early Help plan supports the parents so we can make things better for the children – this is a ‘Think Family’ approach.
On this website you will find information about what a education health care plan is and how to request an assessment for an education health and care plan, information about the local mediation arrangements, how to appeal to the SEND tribunal as well as the local authority's arrangements for the conversion of statements into education health and care plans.
If you or a health worker has concerns following the birth of your child, and your baby needs to stay in hospital afterwards or have further tests to find a diagnosis, it can be a very difficult time.
What is a personal Budget
Short Breaks for Disabled Children Service Statement
Children’s Services is transforming the approach it takes to family support and how we care for children and young people within the Bradford District. Signs of safety will be a new way in which the Council will work with children and families that all practitioners will use. From how we provide early help and support to families to how we manage child protection plans, Signs of Safety will bring about more consistency in our work together. Signs of Safety is part of our wider plans to improve health and education outcomes and increase employment and skills.
