The support we provide can include:-

  •  Information on services
  • Information on funding
  • Tailor-made support for home to help with routines and preparation for changes
  • Opportunities for sharing  experiences with other parents/carers
  • Parent/Carer sessions with outside speakers or staff who can offer training and advice

Please feel you can contact us to ask for specific training and we will try to include this in future plans. Family Support Worker Our Family Support Worker, Julie Addison, can also provide more individual support to families.

I am available to offer help about a variety of things that may be worrying you or you wish to discuss personally.

This may lead to home visits and on-going advice.
If I am unable to directly help I will contact the relevant agencies who may be able to support you.

We look forward to working together with you.
