Supporting Families Programme

Supporting Families is about working with the whole family, not just the children, or a single family member.

Families are often trying to deal with more than one problem at a time. This can make it difficult for families to get the right help and support. Although each family is different, many have issues relating to:

  • crime and anti-social behaviour
  • education, children not in school
  • worklessness, adults on out-of-work benefits
  • young people not in employment, education of training
  • problems with drugs and/or alcohol
  • physical or mental health problems
  • domestic violence and abuse
  • families at risk of homelessness or unmanaged debts
  • young children failing to thrive
  • unhealthy weight and/or malnutrition concerns

Each family will have a single family plan and a key worker who will help co-ordinate support services, and who they can contact when they want to talk about things, or need further help.
