Early Help Assessment (EHA) and Team Around the Family (TAF)

EHA and TAF (formerly known as CAF and TAC) and Lead professional information and resources

You can always download the current and approved versions of the Oxfordshire Threshold of Needs, Early Help Assessment Form and Team around the Family documentation (formerly TAC and CAF) from the Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children Board website.

In addition to the forms, there are also multiple format professional view forms, tools for helping with conversations with children, information leaflets and more.

The Early Help Assessment was created using feedback from young people, parents and professionals across Oxfordshire. It provides a standardised approach to conducting an assessment of a child’s additional needs and deciding how those needs should be met.

It can be used by practitioners across all services working with children and families in Oxfordshire.
