A dedicated team of experienced staff and volunteers, with excellent knowledge of local services and support network deliver our Family Support Service. They work together in partnership to provide a multi-agency approach.
Our team will work with you to make sure you have all the support you need, delivered in a way that best suits your family situation. We are non-judgemental and will challenge, support and provide a service that best meets the needs of you and your family.
The benefits to you and your family include: improved self esteem, better communication of feelings and thoughts of knowing how to look for compromise and keep each other safe, increased confidence in dealing with difficult and risky situations, seeing your children and young people happy, motivated and achieving, feeling better – both mentally and physically and less reliance on outside services – but the awareness of how and when to access them.
