Congratulations go to three YSS Early Help Family Support Workers, Gina, Sue and Alison for completing their Accredited Level 4 Early Help Practitioner Training - they worked hard to do this, while continuing to work. 

The three support workers, who are based in Shropshire, received the accreditation following two years' study, encompassing early intervention and safeguarding work; the course aims to develop the practitioner's ability to support the confidence and skills of children, young people and families to help them overcome barriers and maximise their independence.

Shropshire Local Authority commissions YSS to deliver YSS Early Help Family Support to provide targeted early help support for children, young people and their families. YSS Early Help Family Support keyworkers are co-located with partner agencies around Shropshire. The aim of the service is to improve outcomes for children and young people aged 0 -19 years by ensuring that they and their families receive appropriate support at the earliest opportunity.
