Early Help Assessment

A new Early Help Assessment form was launched in December 2023. It replaces FCAF, Early Help Part 1 and many other assessment and referral forms. It is designed to include the voice of the child whilst avoiding families needing to have multiple assessments. It also provide better quality referral information and reduces bureaucracy for frontline workers.
