Help from Birmingham Children’s Partnership

As partners across Birmingham, Birmingham Children’s Partnership are connecting together to support families who want Early Help.

  • Sectors are connecting together in ten localities:
  • community,
  • voluntary and faith sectors,
  • health,
  • family support,
  • social work,
  • police,
  • schools, further education, nurseries,
  • children’s centres,
  • health visitors and GPs.

Each area has a voluntary sector Locality Lead and staff from a range of services, see our list of the ten Locality Leads.

The ten Locality Leads have close relationships with partners and communities, so they can help the whole family.

For example: provide family support, give advice and guidance including linking to food banks, connect families to the professionals who can support them and coordinate the help, support early help assessments, connect families into the local community resources to help families to be more resilient, and give small grants for emergency food assistance.
