Support for early help community practitioners

Following extensive engagement with partners, we’re trialling a new support offer for practitioners working with families who have emerging or additional needs in Lambeth.

What is the early help offer for practitioners in Lambeth?

Following the successful early help Streatham Pilot which ran from June to November 2018, we'll be providing a new community early help offer, which includes:

  • named early help contacts for professionals across the borough (see below in the 'Contacts' section)
  • a multi-agency locality action panel (LAP) which meets every 2-4 weeks (depending on caseloads) where professionals can discuss complex cases and harness local help and resources for the children and families that they support
  • training on a range of issues relevant to families in Lambeth, such as gangs and group violence, trauma and emotional wellbeing
  • a practical toolkit for practitioners supporting families, based on a framework of assess, plan, do, review.
