The Family Support worker provides in-house holistic wrap around family intervention work designed to help build resilience for change and to cope with ongoing challenges; provide support to address a range of issues around debt/benefits/low mood/relationships. Our RISE family service alongside our partners aims to Reach, Inspire, Support and Empower families in need who are struggling with a range of complex issues including:
- anti-social behaviour
- domestic abuse
- mental health
- wellbeing and self-esteem
Our Family Support Service works with the whole family in an intensive and motivational way, supporting and empowering them to discover new capabilities and confidence, effect change and build resilience. This model can be challenging but ultimately transformational and rewarding as we witness families establishing new routines, developing stronger relationships, connecting with wider support networks and services and re-engaging with educational and employment opportunities.
Additional new services offered as part of our Family Service include level 2 smoking cessation advice and guidance; positive parenting through the Family Links Nurturing Programme along with the Welcome to the World support for pregnant women.
