Early Help Service Redesign – Peopletoo working with Kirklees Council
Posted on 5th March, 2020
Peopletoo were engaged to co-design a multi-agency approach to ensure the delivery of effective, cohesive Early Support Services to meet the needs of children, young people and families across the diverse communities of Kirklees.
Following a review of Early Support Services, Peopletoo were commissioned to implement the recommendations of the programme. The key focus was to provide a more responsive, timely and integrated support to those in need.
To successfully carry out this work the team were required to understand the culture and context underpinning the Council’s Early Support Strategy, whilst identifying areas where changes to the current delivery pathways would have a positive impact on reducing demand on higher tier services and improving outcomes for families. Building on evidenced based, best practice, both within the Service and from across the UK, recommendations were developed to support the transformation of the Early Support Services.
