Early Help Assessment (EHA)


Family group

The Early Help Assessment (EHA) is a way of working with children and their families. It involves listening to the family, to find out their needs and providing support and services. An action plan will be agreed with the family. It is put in place to make sure the family get the right sort of help at the right time. The EHA is voluntary and families can choose to be involved.

If at any time during this process it is felt that a child is suffering or is likely to suffer from significant harm, the Children's Reception Team should be contacted on 0300 300 0901.
