Children's Early Support

Cambridgeshire Early Support is for children from birth until the end of Year R at Primary school, who have complex additional needs or disability and require on-going specialist support from across education, health and care. This includes children who have great difficulty communicating, have sensory, learning or physical difficulties and/or complex health needs. All will need additional support with many aspects of their daily lives and it is probable that there will be a lifelong impact on their development and learning.

There are three Early Support Coordinators who can be contacted by parents and professionals. They help a Think Family approach be delivered and provide a support offer to lead professionals, which includes:

  • Being the central contact point to coordinate new referrals to Early Support
  • Helping coordinate assessment, services and support for children known to Early Support and their family.
  • Being a source of knowledge of available services, support and information resources.
  • Supporting arrangements for multi-agency ‘Team around the Family’ meetings, ensuring Family Support Plans are developed, reviewed and updated.

Please email CCS-TR.Early-Support@nhs.net  for more information or contact one of the Early Support Coordinators directly.
