Strengthening Families (training and support) - FAQs

Are there still Early Help network meetings?

No. During consultation a robust training programme was highlighted as needing to be developed. This would meet the needs of all practitioners working within Early Help, and also deliver training which responded to learning from audits.

What training is available?

Training will be available to book through the SSCB website. Information about which courses are running will be available through the EH newsletter. ECINS training can be booked by emailing shropshirestrengtheningfamilies@shropshire.gov.uk
