Early Help

The Early Help Strategy is owned by Manchester Children’s Board. It is a key element of their overall vision to improve outcomes for children, young people and their families.  Effective Early Help is essential to improve the life chances of Manchester’s children, young people and their families.  The aim of the Manchester Early Help Service is to build capacity in communities that will prevent crime, support education and enterprise, and keep children, young people and their families healthy and safe.

For more information please see the leaflets attached or on the Local Authority website

At Pike Fold we work closely with our familes to provide more than just an academic education for your child. MIss J. McHale and Mrs J. Stevenson are our Safeguarding and Pastoral leads and are available most mornings and afternoons for drop in chats, advice and support. 

If you and your family are in need of more long term support, we can also arrange for external agencies and support services to work alongside you for as long as you may need, this is usually through the Manchester Early Help Offer. 

Please take a look at the below links to some useful websites as well as leaflets and resources, attached at the bottom of this page, including local charities that you may wish to access independently.
