Early Help

In Haringey we define Early Help as the information, advice, guidance, support and interventions that enable children and families to remain safely in their communities. We seek to improve their outcomes, sustain family relationships and reduce the need for more specialist support. The Youth Team are part of the Early Help and Prevention Service and contribute to the service objectives and Haringey’s corporate priorities under the vision of the Youth Strategy:

"Haringey will create communities that enable young people to thrive and flourish: to be safe, social and successful."

The Youth Team work with young people aged 10-19 and up to 25 for young people with special educational needs.
