Telford & Wrekin Council is committed to providing children and young people, the most vulnerable families and adults in need of specific care and support, the best services we can.

The Vision for the Early Help and Support Service is that it works alongside other partners and community members completely immersed in communities supporting adults, children and families. The primary purpose of the service will be to reduce demand on statutory higher tier more expensive services such as social care by targeting support to our most complex families whilst strengthening early help prevention working arrangements to ensure individuals are supported to get the “Right Help at the Right Time” to live active healthy independent lifestyles by utilising their own networks and community assets. We will maintain a focus on safeguarding adults and children at all times

The Teams will deliver a “Strengthening Families” whole family working approach across an all age service. Ensuring multi agency Integrated working practices are at the heart of everything we do this supportive, targeted work with children and families will help prevent family breakdown.

The “Strengthening Families” whole family working model will prioritise a “step up and step down” approach to and from social care and statutory social work functions and manage the complexity and risks of our more challenging individuals and families .

 In complex individual and family situations, the function of the Early Help and Support Practitioners, will be to assess, plan and provide support to deliver against our Strengthening Families outcomes framework.
