Essex CC Early Help Offer
This document aims to bring together all the key components of the current Essex Early Help Offer and its purpose is to provide a cohesive picture of that offer for those organisations and professionals who support vulnerable children, young people and families. Early Help is the identification of, and response to, emerging problems for children, young people and their families. It is a way of working that supports families, children and young people to overcome difficulties and build their resilience, so that problems do not escalate and they are able to thrive and live and engage happily in their communities.
Children and young people risk becoming involved in gangs
Independent charity Crimestoppers is highlighting that children and young people across Essex are at risk of becoming involved with gangs and the violence and abuse that often follows.
Many young people join gangs for protection or say that it makes them feel part of a family. It is not only young men. Young women are also recruited and routinely suffer sexual violence to ‘control’ them.
Crimestoppers charity wants to raise awareness of the issue and encourage Essex residents to speak up 100% anonymously to help keep young people safe. Our charity gives people the power to speak up, stay safe and stop crime by calling our professionally-staffed 24-hour UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111 or by using the untraceable Anonymous Online Form www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
