Early Help Assessment Tool

Early Help means taking action to support a child, young person or their family early in the life of a problem, as soon as it emerges. It can be required at any stage in a child's life from pre-birth to adulthood, and applies to any problem or need that the family cannot deal with or meet on their own.

The Early Help Assessment Tool (EHAT) is an assessment for multi-agency support.
