Targeted Early Help (TEH) Teams provide targeted family support to families. TEH also provide advice and guidance to professionals about how to provide help to families, where the threshold for Children Social Care is not met, as early as possible.
The TEH service offers support to children, young people and families who need some help to make things better. This may include support with parenting, routines and boundaries, maintain a safe standard of home conditions or keeping children safe. This is achieved through the development of a Team around the family (TAF) plan. TEH will devise the plan children, families and all professionals working with the family.
There is a TEH Team based in each of Sandwell’s six towns and are located within multi agency offices in each town.
