Early Help Assessment and guidance

What is an Early Help Assessment (EHA)?

The Early Help Assessment is a tool to assist any professional who is working with children, young people and families. It should be used where there are emerging welfare or well-being concerns. This is NOT a referral form but gives a framework to consider whilst working with a child or family.

It is not compulsory to use the Early Help Assessment but if at a later date you wish to refer the child or young person onto statutory services, there will be an expectation that you have completed this form.
