Children, young people and family centres are a great place to start when looking for that initial support.
They can signpost you to services and support that may be suitable for your needs or advice you on how to access more intense support through the Early Help referral process. You can visit your nearest Children's Centre or telephone Advice Point on 0116 454 1004.
