Early Help Offer
At Crawley Green we want every child in our care to thrive. We put the child at the centre of everything we do to meet their needs and improve outcomes. Our primary aim is to identify needs early and to make sure that appropriate support is put into place. We believe that information sharing and timely effective support can ensure that all children and families get a good start in life.
