Families First Portal
Hertfordshire have created a resource for families called "Families First Portal".
This is a directory of organisations, services and groups in Hertfordshire that can help with problems you or your family may be facing, before things might get worse. This is known as 'Early Help'. There is advice and guidance on a range of issues and local and national support services, many of which are free for families to access.
You may not want or need to ask for help from a professional and there's lots of support you can find yourself by looking on the portal.
