Early help

If you have difficulties in your family or are worried about your children, there are people who can offer help and support.

Difficulties could be:

  • Mental health problems
  • Domestic abuse at home
  • Drug or alcohol dependency
  • Your child not going to school
  • Struggling as a lone parent
  • Debt problems
  • Housing problems
