Early Help 

Early help is about supporting families who are struggling with the day-to-day challenges they are facing.

This could be when a parent first faces a challenge that they feel they need help to manage, regardless of the age of their children. 

Parkwood Hall Co-operative Academy has an experienced Family Liaison Officer Clare Hollick who may be able to help with an application for support she can be contacted on 01322 618060
