Over the last decade the Government has highlighted the importance of safeguarding children and how developing early intervention services and support is key to achieving this. In West Sussex one of our top priorities is to give every child the best start in life. Providing early help means providing family support as soon as a problem emerges. Think Family and Early Help provide support for practitioners. Click here for more information.
