The SESLIP Early Help group brings together early help leads from across the 19 SESLIP authorities.

The purpose of the group is to build relationships and share and improve practice across the South East local authorities.  The group meets each quarter and has standing items relating to:

  • one LA sharing practice;
  • data sharing;
  • family hubs and
  • issues for escalation to the SESLIP DCSs.

Grainne Siggins (DCS Bracknell Forest) is the Project Sponsor and Chair, Stuart Collins (Director, Kent) is the vice chair.

Please contact Rebecca Eligon (details below) for an invitation link.

There is a contact list of Early Help Leads here.
