Bradford Council Prevention and Early Help Services

Early Help is the support provided for children, young people and their families to respond when difficulties emerge or to stop problems developing in the future. This support can be provided at any point in a child’s life to stop small problems getting bigger.

Early help support is a partnership approach. All agencies that work with children, young people and families are responsible for listening to your concerns and worries. They will work closely with you to make sure that you and your family get the right support at the right time.

Where can I get Early Help?

If you feel you and your family might need support to solve some problems, you can ask someone in your life that you trust about early help. This could be a teacher, GP, Health Visitor, nursery practitioner, or any other practitioner supporting you. Or you can contact Bradford Council’s Early Help Gateway by calling us on 01274 435600.

More information for parents and professionals is available on the Early Help web page on the Bradford Council website
