Early Help Strategy

Rutland has made considerable progress in its Early Help arrangements across the partnership. Our Early Help Strategy sets out our vision for supporting children, young people and families in Rutland.

The Rutland Children’s Trust through a collaborative partnership approach, supports the development and improvement of services for children and young people 0 – 19 years, including to the age of 25 years for some vulnerable young people. The agreed vision and priorities are set out in the Children, Young People and Families Plan (CYPFP) 2016 to 2019.

The Rutland Children’s Trust also provides the governance structure for the Children’s Centre Programme and the Changing Lives (Troubled Families) programme.

The Early Intervention Service is located within the People’s Directorate of the Council and has a key role in the provision of early help services, taking a lead in the delivery and commissioning of services. 

It also has a role as a partner working collaboratively and co-operatively within a system of services from the statutory, voluntary and community sector. It is also a facilitator – helping to strengthen the partnership and build capacity and confidence across the partnerships. The service operating manual outlines the standards to which the service operates.
