What is the Families First Portal?
This is our directory of organisations, services and groups in Hertfordshire that can help you with problems you or your family may be facing, before things might get worse. This is known as 'Early Help'.
You may not want or need to ask for help from a professional and there's lots of support you can find yourself by looking on the portal.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, email us.
What is Early Help?
We all experience problems at some time and we want to help you find the early help, information support you may need before a situation becomes a crisis.
By providing early help to families and overcoming problems before they get worse, we can :
- Enable children to live and thrive in a family environment;
- Contribute actively to finding solutions to the issues they face;
- Give families choices to find the right kind of support for their needs in the local area;
- Recognise and build on the strengths of the family and improve their situation with our support.
We aim to ensure all key partner agencies take a joined up approach and together, make the best use of their resources to help children, young people and families.
You may not know where to look for early help, and it is difficult to know what services are available and how to use them. Families First can help.
