Early help forms
In Shropshire there's a range of tools available to assist practitioners in assessing unmet needs, identifying what outcomes need to be achieved and how this will be done. The tools we have ensure that children, young people and their families participate in the decisions that affect their lives, and that their voices are heard.
To this end, we've developed a Shropshire 'Family Webstar' assessment tool and a 'whole family action plan'. The Webstar can be used as a starting point for a discussion with family members where early help needs are emerging. The action plan is about working with the family to identify goals, solutions and tasks to aid the identification of the right service at the right time. The Family Webstar Assessment and Whole Family Action Plan replace the Early Help Assessment Form (EHAF).
Paper copies of the Webstar assessment, plan and consent form can be sent to Compass until you are signed up to ECINS, copies of which are below.
