Early Help Register

The Early Help Register has replaced the WeCAF system.

Information early help agencies record on the Register will be used to analyse and identify the range and level of early help to better target support and services to where they are most needed.

The Register is not a referral and will not hold the full assessment ,so it doesn’t require a log in / password and is very accessible and secure.

If you are providing additional support for a child or family, or to determine additional support, please then complete an Early Help Assessment.  This can be your own internal Early Help Assessment (EHA), a Common Assessment Framework (CAF), Signs of Safety (SoS) mapping – or a template which is currently being developed that agencies may wish to adopt.

If you don’t have an EHA process or document in place, please contact the Children First Hubs who can offer support with this.

Access the Early Help Register including a ‘How to complete the register' video guide.
