Early Help Network
Since 2015, stakeholders of the Early Intervention Network in Beckum have been jointly responsible for young families and pregnant women and offer a variety of preventive support and counselling services. A cooperation agreement signed by all members describes the cooperation, as well as common standards and basic attitudes in the cooperation. The network structure enables professional exchange and cooperation between the different actors, coordination and further development of services, as well as needs-based planning and better access to families.
Contact person and network coordinator: Maria Steinhoff
