Early Help Roll Out - Partner Brief

The new Early Help model that supports children and families with a range of need rolled out in Cannock, Lichfield, Stafford and South Staffordshire on Monday 2nd July 2018.

Over the past few months, work has been gaining momentum around the Staffordshire County Council’s Children’s System Transformation. The transformation aims to change the way children and families in Staffordshire are supported, to help families manage the problems they may face, to keep children safe and to reduce the numbers of children in care.

Let's Work Together - Spotting the Signs of Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse is so broad ranging that recognising the signs can be challenging.   However, if you do feel that someone may be a victim of abuse, asking the question and opening a can of worms that you feel unsure about dealing with can also be very difficult.  

This session will hopefully answer the question of why people find it so difficult to seek help, and to leave a relationship that is so damaging.   It will also help to consider what signs you may spot when visiting someone and how you might sensitively raise the question of whether they need help.
