Family Support

You know your children best and want the best for them but sometimes you need help with benefits, housing, finding work and child related issues that might be considered out of the reach of a school. We can help parents, carers and children by offering an advisor called an Outreach Worker. She won't have all the answers, but she can help you find them by giving you support, information and advice around a range of issues.
