      JERSEY'S CHILDREN FIRST WELLBEING INDICATORS (EARLY HELP INTERVENTION)

      The Jersey’s Children First is for everyone working with children regardless of the role you have in supporting children and will help support your practice as you work to improve outcomes for children so they have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Children will progress differently, depending on their circumstances, but every child has the right to expect appropriate support from adults.

      At the heart of Jersey’s Children First is a commitment to early intervention and prevention for children and for this to be co-ordinated around children and families when needed.

      The approach uses eight areas of wellbeing in which children need to progress in order to reach their full potential and promote the four outcomes of the Children’s Plan that all children and young people - grow up safely, live healthy lives, learn & achieve, are seen & heard.

      Wellbeing Indicators

      The 8 wellbeing indicators are:
      Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible, Included

      How to use the Wellbeing Indicators

      You should ask yourselves the following five questions when you have concerns about a child:

      • What is getting in the way of this child’s wellbeing?
      • Do I have all the information I need to help this child and their family?
      • What can I do now to help?
      • What can my agency, service or setting do to help this child?
      • What additional help, if any, may be needed from others?
