When times are bad, families need extra support.

Family Partners is an intensive Family Support Service which aims to help families make positive changes, overcome difficulties and ultimately prevent child’s needs being neglected. 

We do this by building a trusting relationship with parents and children, and challenge the whole family to make positive changes, at the earliest onset of difficulties.  We don't wait for a crisis to develop.

This service is provided on a one-to-one basis by a Family Partners practitioner for 22 weeks and home visiting is the main method of delivery.

The core components of the service are

  • Building a trusting, respectful and co-operative relationship so that families engage with the programme
  • Providing challenge, practical help and support through one-to-one work so that families develop changed behaviours for developing routines, keeping the home clean and safe, providing safe stimulating activities, providing a balanced diet, keeping children safe and managing money and debts
  • Acting as broker to specialist, universal or community services
