Family Support:

Family Support staff work in partnership with the Blackpool Children Centres and services to provide families with early intervention strategies and intensive support for the whole family:

  • Offer families with disabled children aged 0-13 years, practical support and advice within their home, at the Together centre or another appropriate setting.
  • Act as a families advocate to liaise with other professionals and facilitate any actions that may need to be put into place; this may be through multi-agency meetings or 1:1 contact.  
  • Identify and assess factors affecting an individual child’s or young person’s ability to benefit from the full range of support to which they are entitled and assist them to access relevant services and agencies to remove these barriers so necessary support can be provided.
  • Enable families to access other services and agencies that will provide information and support to address the issues that their family is experiencing.
