Family Advice Work

Our Family Advice Workers support parent carers on an individual basis helping them to prioritise the issues relating to their family.

They provide practical support to parents for example:

  • We can help parents prepare for meetings to help them focus on the outcomes they want for their family.
  • We help some families write down their parental advice for review meetings about their children.
  • We support parents at meetings and act as a prompt when they forget things they wanted to say.
  • We contact professionals on behalf of parents to follow up actions agreed at meetings.
  • We give advice about suitable benefits, grants and concessions families may be able access and refer on to specialist services where appropriate.
  • We work across agency boundaries.
  • We deliver training.
