Our Family Support service is led by our Senior Family Caseworker- Jacqui Ashforth. After receiving funding from the Francis C Scott Charitable Trust, we became open to referrals and commenced the Family Support Project on September 1st 2015. This project allows us to provide support for families with children and young people, where the adults are experiencing mental health issues and adversity. Research has concurred that having a parent/carer with mental health issues, can greatly increase the chances of the child developing mental health issues themselves as well as becoming subject to discrimination and bullying. Early preventative intervention in such cases is proven to have encouraging and beneficial outcomes. The aim of this project is to help improve the mental health and wellbeing of the adult in order to have a positive impact on the family, allowing them to move forward with their lives.
