Early Help Hubs
Hampshire has ten early help hubs. Each hub meets on a weekly basis to coordinate the multi-agency response for families with complex needs who do not meet the threshold for statutory social care.
The Early Help Checklist is designed to help practitioners decide whether the early help assessment would be useful to help them to support the family.
The Early Help Parent/Carer leaflet helps explain the role of early help and what can be expected.
All enquiries regarding accessing early help hub services should be made via Hantsdirect 0300 555 1384
The Family Information and Services Hub is where you will find information about what is going on in your area, details on how families can access services, organisations and activities in Hampshire, and the advice and support that’s available.
