News from the Families First Pathfinder Areas!
Families First is changing the way services provide early help to families in Hertfordshire, bringing together organisations who provide early help support to families under one ‘umbrella’ of consistent practice and clearer processes.
This week the first of the new triage panels will run in the pathfinder areas of Stevenage, Broxbourne and Watford & Three Rivers. Our new electronic leaflet explains some of what is happening, and our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) give more detail.
