What's new

Update on the Graduated Pathway: Early Help and Support for children, young people and families.

Following feedback received during engagement activity in the Spring, we have finalised the graduated pathway and the related tools; My Plan, My Assessment and My Plan+. We have also updated and republished the Pathway flowchart and FAQs. These documents are available on the Early Help Webpage.

As previously communicated, we have arranged locality Drop-in sessions week beginning 4th July for partners and practitioners. Please see the Early Help Webpage for details of these. There is not a requirement to book a place at one of these sessions. You are warmly welcomed to come along and have opportunity to discuss the final pathway and supporting tools and how these will work in practice with practitioners and partners.

Please note we are still in the process of configuring and formatting the templates so will upload Word versions for use soon. if you have any further queries or comments, please contact

A Single Pathway for all Children and Families with Additional Needs

We are working together to develop our Early Help offer across Gloucestershire. In March, we shared proposals for a single pathway for all children, young people and their families. As you know, for children whose needs and circumstances make them more vulnerable, a coordinated multi-disciplinary approach is usually best, based on a holistic assessment, with a Lead Practitioner to work closely with the child and family to ensure they receive all the support they require.

The interest and contribution to the proposals has been great. We received over 60 feedback forms and over 240 people came to the 9 engagement sessions in April.

We have reviewed all feedback received. On the Early Help Extra webpage we have responded to some key concerns you raised and published a summary of your thoughts and views. We are also in the process of updating our FAQs and will re-publish these in June along with the finalised pathway and supporting tools.

We have planned a second set of locality ‘drop-in’ sessions for you to review the finalised pathway and assessment tools before full implementation from September 2016. For further details please see the Early Help Extra webpage.

Further communications will be issued in June. In the meantime if you have any further queries or comments, please contact
