Early Help Assessment Tool (EHAT)

In Sutton we use the Early Help Assessment Tool (EHAT) and the London Continuum of Need to help us assess the needs of children and young people. Using the CAF enables us to understand a child’s needs and to develop effective Action Plans and packages of support in order to address those needs. It also helps us to identify when children and young people require referrals for statutory assessment.
