Safety Happiness and Health Toolkit - The Early Help Strategy was launched in March 2021. The CSCP worked with young people to develop the strategy and Cumbria Safeguarding Youth Voices developed a toolkit to support children and young people to ask for help earlier. The toolkit designed by young people for young people acts like a guide to early help.
