Providing Early Help for Children and Families – Birmingham City Council
Posted on 6th October, 2020
To identify vulnerable families that were struggling and provide a range of local support for them during the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic
The Covid-19 pandemic has taken an enormous toll on all communities in Birmingham, but the greatest impact has been on the most vulnerable. Before the pandemic, Birmingham Children’s Partnership (Birmingham City Council, Birmingham Children’s Trust, West Midlands Police, Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group, Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust) had agreed a change programme for children and family services. As a result of the pandemic, these plans were accelerated to coordinate support from across the partnership remotely to support children, young people and their families.
