Early Help Hub
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
What is the Early Help Hub?
The ‘front door’ to Early Help services led by Cornwall Council and Cornwall Foundation Trust.
Staff within the Early Help Hub will decide whether the child / young person is eligible for support and which service is most appropriate. This is usually in discussion with the person making the request and / or young person / family.
Children and young people who are aged pre-birth to 18. If a young person has a special educational need or disability, who have a need for early help care and support, this is extended up to age 25.
- Professionals, parents and young people can request early help.
- Parents/carers must have Parental Responsibility (PR) if requesting a service for a child.
- Young people must be old enough to consent for support themselves (aged 13 or above).
Professionals must gain consent from a parent or competent young person to make a request for help.
