Changes to the Early Help Panel

The Early Help Panel has been running in Trafford since 2017 and has enabled effective information sharing between agencies and for the right help to be put in place for children and families at the right time. To broaden the capabilities of the Early Help Panel these will be expanded. From August 2020 there will be four separate Early Help Panels, one in each locality which will take place on different days.

  • Monday - West Locality
  • Tuesday - North Locality
  • Wednesday - Central Locality
  • Thursday - South Locality

The aim is that each panel will develop local intelligence and a membership that is reflective of the area children, young people and families live, with key members including; Children's Services, Commissioning, Health (School Nursing/Health Visiting), Mental Health Services, Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Services, Education, Housing, Alcohol and Substance Support Services, Domestic Abuse Services, Police, 3rd sector and voluntary organisations.
