Andy Giles, SMBC then shared how Early Help SPF Jun 2015is everyone’s business. Several consultations have taken place over the year http://socialsolihull.org.uk/earlyhelp/ Here comes our part by sharing our views. If we had an issue in our family – financial or realtionship or concerning our children, where will we turn for information and support? More questions can be found hereĀ Early Help Questions for Parents Some people go to family/friends, some search on-line, while its harder for lot of us to accept there is a concern. Speaking to someone, could be a step forward towards reducing stress in our lives. What information would you need and where would you like to find it?
