What is an Early Help Assessment
The Early Help Assessment (EHA) is the local assessment that is used by all agencies working with children, young people (0-19) and their families in Portsmouth to agree what extra help may be needed to support a child or young person at an early stage.
The Early Help Assessment will help professionals to work with families to:
- clarify the child and their family's needs and strengths; and
- Coordinate the help and services that are needed.
Using an Early Help Assessment can make sure that decisions are made at the earliest opportunity to improve life for the child/Young person and their family.
