Family support is based on supporting the adults involved in a child’s life; again we can do this through one-to-one and group work activities. We usually support the adult to achieve the goals they have set. Our Parents and Carers group (PaCs) is an excellent platform for peer support and the sharing of ideas and experiences. We welcome enquiries from volunteers who have skills in, or would like to develop their skills in supporting adults.
Some of the support is only offered during term time and others all year round. This service also organises the family fun days and activities. Volunteers who work with adults will be expected to commit to at least 1-2 hours in their chosen activity, plus additional time for supervision, training and briefing sessions.
