CHEXS supports the Early Help Module (EHM) process at the request of the school to fit in with the school/family availability. CHEXS provides on-going information and advice to support the EHM process.
Helps to identify support that can work for the whole family, rather than just individuals
It encourages early intervention, reducing the risk of a situation developing into a crisis
It identifies gaps in support, as well as additional needs that have prevented families from engaging with support in the past.
It supports integrated ways of working across child and adult services and will reduce duplication of work.
Families get the support of a Key Worker who coordinates the provision of supportand acts as a single point of contact with the whole family when a range of services are involved and a multi-agency response is required.
The FFA reduces overlap and inconsistencies in the services received by using an agreed set of actions to deliver support. These actions should be reviewed and monitored regularly at Team around the Family (TAF) meetings
CHEXS Referral Process
If FFA support is required, the school should contact CHEXS team to advise of family circumstance toand complete relevant forms.
