Family Programme

… support, guidance and friendship

 

The Family Programme provides access to family support through parenting groups, weekly classes and activities delivered by an experienced Family Support Worker. Education, prevention and intervention are identified ways of supporting child development and our team bring new ideas, skills and techniques to the programme to contribute to strengthen families for the future.

The Family Forum is made up of parents and carers from the community who have a vested interest in reviewing and contributing to the development of activities and services for families.

Key to the success of the Family Programme is working together, listening and supporting our families to enable the realisation of our vision. Going forward the Trust is actively seeking government funding to further develop its Family Programme.
