Early Help is a multi-agency forum which discusses individual young people who are struggling. The multi-agency part means that professionals who know the young person and their family come together and share their insights. They then develop an action plan for supporting that young person.

Community Development Workers are involved in these forums as they can offer their perspective on any young person they work with. They may also know of opportunities in the area, and it is also a place where concerns about a young person can be raised when needed.
