Our Family Support Volunteers service is suited to the local community, providing the best place to help families flourish
We make sure we include everyone, and encourage parents to participate. We see the best results for children when more individuals pull together, putting their energies, skills and time into a child's development and well-being.
We know every family is different, and we tailor our approach to each one. We take a 'whole family approach', developing a relationship that works for the individual needs of each family member and child, taking care to listen and value everyone's needs.
We work with new/expecting parents and parents of children up to the age of 8. We work together to promote stronger mental health and wellbeing within families, volunteers and staff provide a weekly support service through visits/contacts to families in the West Dunbartonshire area. At Family Support Volunteers we offer a listening ear and support around parenting through a variety of resources including Bookbug, [email protected] and Five to thrive.
We partner locally with health visitors, midwives and other professionals to ensure we have a huge pool of resources, knowledge and experience to make sure we provide the best places to help families flourish.
