Early Help / Families First - St Clement Danes School



Early Help / Families First

We all experience problems at some time and we want to help you find the early help, information support you may need before a situation becomes a crisis.

By providing early help to families, overcoming problems before they get worse, Early Help can :

  • enable children to live and thrive in a family environment
  • contribute actively to finding solutions to the issues they face
  • give families choices to find the right kind of support for their needs in the local area
  • recognise and build on the strengths of the family and improve their situation with support

Early Help aims to ensure all key partner agencies take a joined up approach and together, make the best use of their resources to help children, young people and families

You may not know where to look for early help, and it is difficult to know what services are available and how to use them. Families First can help.

'Families First' is the name Hertfordshire have given for all their Early Help support. By clicking on the link below you will have access to all the Early Help available via 'Families First'.


The Pastoral Team at school are always prepared to help you navigate the support offered via 'Families First' but sometime you may want to do this for yourself. This is why we have included this page on our website.
