Early help review

We want to hear your views on proposals to bring together four 'early help' services

We're proposing to merge a range of ‘early help’ and prevention support into one, new-style service - and want to hear your views. 

We're proposing to bring together four services: Children’s Centres, Supporting Leicestershire Families (SLF), Youth Offending Service (YOS) and Information, Support and Assessment teams into a Family Wellbeing Service.

The services tackle problems at an early stage and by preventing problems growing, help to reduce the need for the police or social care to get involved.

The new service would:

• support vulnerable children aged 0-19 and their families

• run from 15 buildings across the county – a reduction of 25, including 24 children’s centres – and include support delivered in people’s homes and other community venues.

• reduce costs by £3.8m. This is made up £1.5m of council budget reductions and £2.3m from the council, partners and the Government, which might not be able to continue if Government funding for the Troubled Families Programme is ended.
