The Monmouthshire Early Help Panel

(Single Point of Access for Children’s Emotional Wellbeing)


What is the Monmouthshire Early Help Panel?


The SPACE-Wellbeing panel is a meeting from which professionals and families can seek early intervention and support for children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing.


The panel aims to make sure that families get the right service, first time, at the right time, and that services work in a joined-up way.  Requests for support may be allocated to service to provide direct support to children and their families.  Sometimes, requests for support will be allocated for ‘support in’.  This means that specialist clinical staff who are part of the panel will link up with childcare professionals who are already working with the child to offer them support and guidance.
