Support with family life (early help)

Support available

Being a parent / carer is one of the most important jobs there is and one of the hardest. Parents / carers are the key to providing children with a happy and stable childhood.

If one person in the family has a problem, this may be a child, young person or adult, it may have an effect on the other people in the family. If all of the family is supported it's more likely that things will improve for you.

We hope you will:

  • ask questions and get involved
  • be as open and honest as possible
  • keep appointments where possible
  • let us know if you don't understand or are unhappy about anything

This will help to make sure you get the best possible results for your family.
