Early Support Programme - co-ordinated support for young disabled children

Early Support is a programme designed to deliver better coordinated services for parents of disabled children under the age of three, as soon as a child is identified as needing additional help.

Early Support brings together education, social care, health services and the voluntary sector, working in partnership with parents to deliver the highest quality services to families with a child under three.

Early Support aims to ensure that both parents and professionals are better informed about families' needs and how best to meet them.

The Family File provides a simple way for families to share information about their child and family situation with other people who are involved in the care of your child. It also allows you to plan next steps in a co-ordinated way.
