Early Help

A guide to the Right for Children system

Right for Children is a web based system that enables practitioners from a range of agencies, services and team to input and share information about the families they are working with.

Information is only shared with the family’s permission.

All practitioners working with a family member are expected to contribute to their Early Help assessment and plan by inputting information to the Right for Children system about the support that they are providing.

To request access please email with your:

  • Full name

When you first sign into the system you will need to agree to the terms and conditions to the use of the system. Please read carefully and tick the box to accept.

The site requires two-factor authentications. A code will be sent to your email address which will need to be copied and pasted into the login page to allow access into the system. This code will last for the remainder of the day.

You will only be able to see the details of cases in which the Lead Practitioner has added you to the ‘Team around the Family’.

You will be able to see and contribute to the assessment and plan for the family.

When you finish working with the family, you need to complete your contribution to the assessment and plan and remove yourself from the case.
