What is it?

A montage of young children

The single assessment for early help is designed to support families and professionals to work together to achieve the best possible future for children and young people.

We recognise that every family can benefit from some extra support from time to time and that it is most successful when everyone works together.

The single assessment for early help encourages everyone involved to develop an understanding of a family’s strengths and challenges. It considers the support needed in all areas that affect a child’s development – from health, education and social development through to housing and family relationships.

Further information for professionals is available in the single assessment for early help toolkit.
