Early Help Services in Hampshire

Early Help means ‘identifying as early as possible if a child or family need support and helping them to access services, working together to ensure that this has maximum impact. In other words, offering the right help at the right time.’

Early Help Hubs

Hampshire has ten early help hubs.  Each hub meets on a weekly basis to coordinate the multi-agency response for families.

The Early Help Parent/Carer leaflet  helps explain the role of early help and what can be expected.
