Early Help Assessment (eEHA)
The Early Help Assessment replaced the Common Assessment Framework (CAF) as the assessment and planning tool to help coordinated multi-agency support.
- professionals identify the needs of children and young people at risk of poor outcomes
- it reduces duplication of assessment and
- improves involvement between agencies.
Professionals referring families for Early Help support will need to complete an eEHA with the child/children to determine the need(s) of each member of the family.
An EHA plan can then follow, which sets out how the family and identified services can work in partnership to address needs and concerns and overcome barriers.
For more information about Early Help Assessments, see the Early Help Practice Guide.
Early Help assessments can be completed online, following attendance at eEHA training. The eEHA System user guide can assist you with step by step guides on how to complete the e-form.
