Early Help Action Planning
One service Emma offers, is 'Early Help Action Planning' (or EHAP for short).
If an issue is causing you or your family problems, and it's not clear how best to improve the situation, then Emma might suggest starting an Early Help Action Plan.
This is your chance to tell Emma all about a worry or problem and to think in more detail about who Emma could contact to help you resolve it. You are completely in control of this process and everything is done with your agreement.
Some common areas where an EHAP could help include:
- Family breakdown and disagreements over contact.
- Concerns about behaviour at home or school.
- Debt problems.
- Mental health worries (children or parents).
An EHAP is a good way to help families access the support they need to solve a particular problem. Contact Emma if you would like to know more about EHAPs.
