City of London Early Help Strategy 2023-26 Public Consultation – Consultation Ends 24 February 2023
Our vision is that The City of London has an Early Help service that is fully integrated with universal services to ensure children, young people and their families have direct access to services upon referral and outcomes are met using a system framework to ensure a holistic approach with the whole family resulting in long-term solutions.
The Early Help Strategy 2023-2026 sets out what we aim to do to ensure that children, young people, and their families in the Square Mile have equal access to early help.
We are looking to co-produce an action plan that enables us to achieve this vision, and we are asking for your views on our proposed plan, its outcomes, priorities, and how we can best deliver them and measure their success.
