Early Support Family File

Written by Early SupportDate 14 Mar 2013

The Family file contains simple, family-held paper systems to help with coordinating support and sharing information - particularly when many different people or agencies are in contact with a child. It was first published in 2004 and updated in 2006 and 2010, following development and consultation with parents and carers, people who work with families and voluntary organisations.

This resource also explains how to use the Family file, which is distributed with this file, how the material can be used and how it relates to the Child Health Record (aka the ‘Red Book’).
