Family Supprt are part of the Early Help and Family Engagement Service amd work with children and their families when they are in need of support. The service recognises the crucial role thay parents and carers play in their children's lives and we are here to provide support when problems first start so that they don't get worse.
We are able to offer advice and guidance, and can support families that are experiencing difficulties in a wide variety of situations. These can include:
- Parenting and challenging behaviour
- Domestic Abuse
- Mental health and well-being
- Finances and housing

Below are some quotes from parents/carers who have accessed the Family Support service:
"It feels great that I can sleep knowing my child is safe"
Mum reported that she "feels more able to interatc more with the children now, as this was an area she previously struglgled with this"
"She has assisted with things that I struggle with such as dealing with letters and phone calls and been present when I've attended social environments which can be a bit daunting for me"
"since having these meetings my confidence has really grown ...... now I have time to read and do homework and spend quality time with each other"
"The process is helpful, meetings help me to relax and share my worries"
