Developing Excellent Early Help Event

In September 2017 Cumbria LSCB launched its Early Help Strategy. We want to know if you think it is working. We want to know what you think Excellent Early Help looks like. Early Help means identifying needs within families early, and providing preventative support and intervention before problems become complex and entrenched. 

Are we getting this right in Cumbria? 

Cumbria LSCB are holding six district based events to enable knowledge sharing to support the development of an Excellent Early Help System.    

At these events Cumbria County Council would also like you to give your feedback on FUTURE services and the proposed Children, Young People and Family’s Wellbeing Model. 

We have an exciting opportunity to design a Family Hub model to deliver the services and interventions needed to ensure that children, young people and their families have the right support at the right time. 

As part of this process we want to ensure that there has been thorough opportunity to engage and consult with the public – including children, young people and families, other services and stakeholders, current providers and internal CCC services to enrich and animate the model with new ideas, critical challenge and curiosity. 

All events start at 1.30pm and aim to finish for 4.30pm.  The presentation on the Children, Young People and Families Wellbeing Model will start from 3.15pm.  Refreshments will be served from 3pm

Places will be limited, so please book you place early

The event booking process for all Cumbria County Council staff members has changed to self-service, resulting in staff booking their own courses through MyHR. Full guidance is available through links on InTouch and access to user guides are also available. As a result of these changes the booking process has become fully automated and confirmation and venue information (previously joining instructions) will be communicated through emails to both individuals and managers. Where a user does not have access to MyHR, then it will be the responsibility of their line manager to book them on the course.
