Early Help

Early Help and Protection is a priority area in the local arrangements for the Local Safeguarding Children Partnership which can be accessed on this link  

On the 29th October 2019 the Children's First Contact Service (CFCS) launched as the new referral and assessment pathway to access Children’s Social Care in the London Borough of Sutton.

The CFCS Referral Form will be the quickest and easiest way to access support.

This form will replace the following forms:

  • Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub - Referral Form
  • Early Help Request
  • Parenting Plus Referral
  • Children with Disabilities - Access point referral


To access the new form and find out more about the Children's First Contact Service please visit this page.

You will also be able to contact the CFCS by emailing childrensfirstcontactservice@sutton.gov.uk or by telephone on 020 8770 6001.
