Council and partners launch awards to recognise community ‘diamonds’ who support children and families
Cheshire East Council and its partners have launched their first Early Help awards which aim to recognise and celebrate individuals and organisations who support children and families early, preventing them from going into crisis.
Early help can be described as: getting involved early and as soon as possible to tackle problems emerging for children, young people and their families.
Issues such as debt, poor mental health or threat of homelessness can happen to families at any point in a child or young person’s life.
Nominations are now open with a deadline of 17 September 2021. Families and organisations can nominate a school, nursery, health professional, charity or community group online at www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/diamond or by requesting a nomination form at EHAnominations@cheshireeast.gov.uk
