Most support for families can be provided by Early Help Services who work with children, young people and their families to offer the right support at an early stage before a small need becomes a bigger one.
A number of different professionals and organisations may be involved in Early Help to offer support in a range of areas. Early Help and support for families includes services provided in the community by the health service, schools and the police. Support provided by Rutland County Council include Visions, Aiming High, Young Carers, Carers and the Youth Service. There are also many voluntary organisations in Rutland offering support for families.
