Early Help Offer

Staff at The Lindens understand that Early Help means providing support as soon as a problem emerges at any point in a child’s life. Staff will discuss Early Help requirements with the DSL in the first instance. Early Help might include guidance on parenting, language development, dietary advice, listening to the voice of the child to identify FGM, or promoting fundamental British values. 


Family Information Services can provide support to all:

Family support and general family advice – where to find support with behaviour, routines, counselling, mentoring, relationships, addictions and anything else a family might need support with.
Childcare–advice on childcare available in Gloucestershire.
The Key Disability Register- provides families and children with additional needs with a newsletter three times a year, advising of any support and financial help families might be entitled to and also entitles the child with a disability to a free swimming pass to attend their local leisure centre.
Activities – things to do with babies and toddlers, clubs and groups for children and young people, fun days, school holiday activities and events.
Parenting Courses - to search for available dates and locations please call the Family Information Service.
