Wellbeing and Early Help

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.

Things that we might help you with….

  • Support and advice during difficult periods i.e illness, bereavement,financial worries and domestic abuse
  • Support for parents in multi-agency meetings
  • Assistance in completing paperwork and forms eg, Disability Living allowance, housing and benefits
  • Pre-loved uniform
  • Support getting your child into school
  • Attendance monitoring with regular meetings to improve attendance and punctuality

Families may require support from a wide range of agencies based on their specialised work. Therefore our role is often to signpost families to the resources that will best support their needs. 

This can include but is not limited to:

  • School Nursing Team    
  • Health
  • Foodbank
  • Citizen Advice Bureau
  • Stepping Stones
  • Luton All Womens Centre
  • Chums
  • Support groups for children and their families with disabilities and/or special educational needs such as Autism Bedfordshire

Contact numbers for different agencies can be found on the Luton Borough Council website should you wish to contact them directly. Some agencies will require a referral from a professional body. If you are unsure please contact us.


Enabling children and their families to receive appropriate support in a timely way can lead to better outcomes for children, and potentially prevent further escalation.

There are early help services for parents, children or whole families. Early help could provide support at any stage in a child or young person’s life. Some are more likely to need this support than others, such as:

  •   Children in or leaving care
  •  Children with disabilities
  •  Mental health
  •  Families facing abuse and conflict
  •   Low-income families
  •  Risk of modern slavery, trafficking or exploitation
  • Families where someone is a carer or young carer
  • Families with someone in prison

Children and families can access early help services in their local area. These may be at school, health centres or through charities and voluntary organisations.

Staff follow statutory guidance including;

  • Keeping Children Safe in Education
  • Working Together To Safeguard Children

Local guidance:

  • Working Effectively to safeguard children and young people

This is in conjunction with school based policies:

  • Safeguarding and Child protection                    
  • Child on Child abuse
  • Low Level Concerns     
  • Code of Conduct                   
  • Online Safety
  • Equality Act 2010
  • Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Early help has lots of positive social, health and behavioural outcomes for children and families.

Please speak to Zoe our Pastoral lead or Jodie our Family worker if you feel you would benefit from some support. We understand it can be difficult to ask for support so alternatively please speak to any member of staff you feel comfortable with.


We hope that you find this wellbeing pack from CAMHS helpful. It has lots of advice on looking after our emotional, physical and mental health during isolation.
