Family life isn’t easy. 70% of parents say that they would benefit from some advice, guidance and support at some time. Raising children can be the greatest joy in the world, but it’s not the easiest of jobs. It can be challenging and puzzling at times, but puzzles have solutions!

Our aim is to identify, as early as possible, children and families in need of support and our programmes are designed to help anyone caring for a child. As we are primarily a school support service, the process begins with a referral from the child’s school. A full discussion starts the process to ensure that specific needs are identified on what the support worker will focus on.

Guidance and Support
Our aim is to identify, as early as possible, children and families in need of support, and in more complex cases, advice and support can be sought from a range of different services. This process begins with a referral from the child’s school to Guidance and Support panel. This panel’s purpose is to discuss the cases and suggest services that can help.
