Research into factors that contribute to an effective, joined-up offer of early help

Commissioned by the Local Government Association, we recently undertook research into the factors that contribute to local areas being able to develop, embed and sustain an effective, partnership-based offer of early help for young people and families. The research was published in March 2019, and you can read the report here.

Later this year, we will be facilitating a series of regional seminars for colleagues involved in the leadership, planning and delivery of local early help offers. The seminars will build on our original research, and will seek to:

  • provide colleagues with the opportunity to reflect on their local early help offer;

  • hear from and work with counterparts from other local areas; and

  • help to continue to shape key messages about what is needed to support the development of effective local offers of early help at both national and local level.
