Early Help Assessment (EHA)

Introduction

Family group

The Early Help Assessment (EHA) is a way of working with children and their families. It involves listening to you and your child, to find out your child’s needs, and what is working well in their life. An action plan will be agreed with you and your child and is put in place to make sure your child gets the right sort of help. The EHA is voluntary, you and your child can choose whether to be involved or not.

If you are a professional and you are thinking of completing an Early Help Assessment you must in the first instance call Hants Direct on telephone: 0300 300 0901.
