Croydon Partnership Early Help
Best Start Family Solutions
Information for children and their parents/carers and families
Who are we?
Every family can go through challenging times at some point. Early help means working with you and your family so that small problems don’t become big problems.
Why would I need Early Help?
There are lots of reasons why people look for early help:
You may be worried about your child’s health, development or behaviour
You may be worried about how they are doing at school
You may be worried about money or housing and how that
is affecting your family
Your child and family may be affected by domestic abuse, drugs, alcohol, mental ill health or crime.
What will happen when I ask for help?
The professional will talk with you about the problems you’re experiencing. They may just point you to the right services for your family. However, if it is a bit more complicated they may complete a Child and Family Wellbeing Assessment (CFWA). This helps them to understand more about what your family needs and which professionals and services can work together to help and support you.
You can talk about things that are going well and things that you are proud of as well as things that you’re finding a challenge.
If the person talking to you believes you and your family need to be referred for more intensive early help support, they will need to refer you and your family to the relevant service.
What can I do next?
If you would like to find out more about early help, please speak to a professional involved with your family

Dear parents / carers,
I am writing to you as Croydon’s Director of Public Health to ask for your help.
Immunising our children against seasonal flu is vital every year but this winter with COVID19 we need even greater support for the seasonal flu vaccination programme. Evidence shows that children easily spread the virus amongst each other and can infect more vulnerable people in their families and communities.
The government has launched the largest flu vaccination programme in history and this year, we would like every child aged 2 to 12 years to be vaccinated. For children at school in classes reception to year 7, the schools immunisation team will be visiting schools to administer vaccines. They have already started seeking consent from parents.
If your child is aged 2, 3 or 4 and not yet in reception, please take your child to the GP to be vaccinated.
The flu vaccination will not only:
- Protect your child The vaccine will help protect your child against flu and serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia
It will also:
- Protect you, your family and your friends Vaccinating your child will help protect more vulnerable family and friends
- Avoid costs If your child gets flu, you may have to take time off work or arrange alternative child care
- No injection is needed for the vast majority of children The nasal spray is painless and easy to have
- It is better than having flu The nasal spray helps protect against flu, has been given to millions of children worldwide and has an excellent safety record
Our local Croydon school immunisation team and local GPs are operating fully and are there for you to ensure that your children receive all the necessary childhood vaccinations. Please make sure that all children in your care are fully vaccinated and safe from infection.
With my best wishes,
Director of Public Health
