Delivering Early Help – information for educators, health workers, community organisations and emergency services

  • The City Council's Early Help teams completed their restructure in June 2018, building on learning from the 0-25 West pilot.

  • Children's Centres, Integrated Youth Support and 'EIP' have merged into one joined-up service.

  • There are now four locality teams, operating from family hubs across the city. Each team has a Locality Manager leading teams of Early Help Practitioners, seniors, managers, and one School Co-ordinator per locality. There is also an Early Help Assessment team, providing three coordinators to support you with assessments.

  • The service is currently refining its offer. There will be a clear offer including early years, education, parenting, housing, ASB, domestic abuse, sex & relationships, and financial health & stability. Everything we do builds on families' strengths.

  • Everyone has their part to play in helping children and young people achieve their potential. The city leaders on the 0-25 Advisory Board will negotiate how different organisations work together, and will keep you updated as things develop.

Contact your Locality Manager for more information (Central: angela.vallely@salford.gov.uk, South: rachel.shearn@salford.gov.uk, West: kate.berry@salford.gov.uk, North: david.fielding@salford.gov.uk).

These services for families are NOT affected by the proposals for local authority nurseries.

Organisations in Salford who provide help in one form or another want to:

  • Support children, young people, families and communities to help themselves whenever possible.
  • Make sure all services can quickly spot children, young people or families who might need extra help from them.
  • Make sure all services act quickly as soon as they know help is needed.

In many ways we are already doing these things. We have written a strategy to make sure we keep doing them, get everyone involved, and do even better.

If you want to tell us about a child or family who might need help now please go to www.salford.gov.uk/worriedaboutachild.
