Early Help Support for Families

Early Help is about helping children, young people and families deal with any issues as early as possible by offering help and support.

The best way to get Early Help support is to talk to a professional who knows you already. This could be your child’s doctor, teacher, support worker, school nurse, health visitor or early intervention and prevention worker.

If you feel you may need this Early Help support, please speak to our Children’s Welfare Officer, Miss McKenzie in school, another professional, or contact Rochdale Early Help through this webpage –

Your Child’s Health

Every parent or carer wants to know how to do what is best for their growing baby and to give them the best start in life. HMR CCG has developed a guide to common childhood illnesses and wellbeing for parents and carers of children from birth and beyond. It aims to help you understand what to do when your baby or child is ill,  how to care for your child at home, when to seek advice from a health visitor or call a doctor and when to use emergency services.

Most of the issues you will be confronted with are simply an everyday part of growing up, often helped by a chat with your midwife or health visitor. Almost all babies, toddlers and children will get the most common childhood illnesses like chickenpox, colds, sore throats and ear infections. While these are not very nice at the time, they are easily treated at home with support from your GP or health visitor, with no need to visit the Accident and Emergency (A&E) department.

The information in this resource is a guide and cannot replace specialist care. If you are worried, you must seek further advice – trust your instincts, you know your child best.
