Early Help (EHA) (CAF)

Early Help Assessment (EHA) and CAF changes as of the 1st September 2015.

On September 1st 2015, Bedford Borough launched its new Early Help Assessment. A copy of the assessment documentation and the supporting Team around the Family information can be found at www.bedford.gov.uk/earlyhelp

 

It is from this point onwards that the Common Assessment Framework (CAF) ceases to be a live system and all CAF processes and documentation should be replaced with the EHA.

Disrespect NoBody campaign

The second phase of the Home Office Disrespect Nobody campaign will run from 2 February until the end of March 2017.

The aim of the Disrespect NoBody campaign is to prevent young people, both boys and girls aged 12 to 18 years old from becoming perpetrators and victims of abusive relationships.

For 2017 the focus of the campaign will be consent and sexting, which are both issues where many young people need more education and information. The campaign advertising directs young people to the website www.disrespectnobody.co.uk where they can get further information and signposts them to organisations who can provide support.
