Early Help


If you are facing challenging times at home, talk to school leaders or check the calendar for details of our next Early Help drop-in session with Anita Giles. Do get in touch early on - don't struggle alone! 

Or, you can follow the link (left) to Kent County Council's Early Help services to find local services that support Kent families with the educational, social and emotional needs of children and young people.

What help is available?

Early Help provide a range of services to meet the educational, social and emotional needs of children, young people and families in Kent through partner organisations. 

For example, support can be offered if:

  • you are worried about your child's behaviour
  • you are struggling to cope
  • you are worried about your family finances
  • your child is struggling to cope with bereavement
  • your child is being bullied
  • your child refuses to go to school or college
  • you or your child want to develop new friends and have new experiences
  • you are having difficulties with family relationships.
