How do I get early help for my child?

Cheshire East Council is committed to providing families with the support they need as soon as they need it to help prevent problems from becoming more serious. This is described as “early help” and includes providing support required by families at any point in the child’s life, not just in early years.

A range of agencies are involved in identifying where families need additional support, and in providing early help - from Children’s centres who provide a fun learning environment for under 5s and the Parenting Journey for all parents in Cheshire East, through to more specific help. The links below provide information on some of the different services that may be able to provide early help for you and your child, depending on your specific needs.
