My Family Plan
Making it easier to offer early help
There are few things a council does which are more important than safeguarding children.
The Department for Education describe early help, also known as early intervention, as support given as soon as a problem emerges, at any stage in a child or young person's life.
Over the past few months the council's Digital Services team and our Children and Families Service have been working with partners to create a digital service to support early help.
Moving away from a paper based system, consisting of browser based forms, digital workflow, and data analysis tools we've created My Family Plan, which we'll be introducing as part of our early help offer soon.
Whilst the new service will be more efficient, more importantly it will make it easier for staff and partner organisation to support children and their families though early help, and that's what really matters.
