The mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs has launched a new Early Help Service which aims to support vulnerable families facing serious issues such as family breakdown, housing problems, emotional health and well-being or money troubles.

The service, which was launched at the Brady Centre in Bethnal Green, aims to tackle issues early on in order to avoid the need for statutory services to be involved.

Early Help is a service that is designed to provide help to children and vulnerable families as soon as their needs emerge and at any point in a child’s life, from prenatal stages and up to the age of 25 years, for those with learning difficulties and or disabilities.

The scheme is part of the council’s new approach which it set out in its Early Help Strategy.

Mayor John Biggs said: “This new service launched at the Brady Centre will ensure that the most vulnerable children and families in Tower Hamlets are offered the support they.”

The Early Help Hub can be contacted by telephone on 020 7364 5006.
