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 to 4 weeks (depending on caseloads) where professionals can discuss complex cases and harness local help and resources for the children and families 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.
