Family Support Update Feb 2021
Our families support teams in Lower Valley and North & East Halifax are still here to support you we are just working a little bit differently. We are mostly offering weekly telephone support but we are able to offer families socially distanced walks and home visits if required. In order to do this safely our staff will be following all the government current advice around hands, face, space. This means that staff will be wearing masks, ensuring they are washing their hands on a regular basis and keeping a safe distance. Rest assured that this doesn’t take away from any of the support that both our teams are offering.
We are continuing to run our family support drop ins across both area but these have been altered to be telephone advice and support services which run multiple times through out the week to ensure that families can access this when it is convenient. Our aim is that as soon as it is safe to do so we will be offering face to face family support services.
Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities
Our Family Support team will be running the parenting programme: Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities in mid March 2021.
The programme is a part of a national research project to evaluate the effectiveness and impact on family wellbeing. Parents who join the project are able to earn up to £40 in vouchers through taking part either on the programme or within the control group that will wait for the next available delivery.
Register to now to reserve your place on this course which has received some fantastic feedback from parents who previously taken part!
