Hertfordshire is committed to empowering families, professionals from all sectors and local communities to work collaboratively in order to make Hertfordshire the best place in which to grow up. This is brought together under the Families First approach. Families First 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.
By providing early help to families, overcoming problems before they get worse we 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 our support
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. Please click on the link below for more information:
