“Hello! I am Beth Rimmington, a Senior Family Support Worker in Lower Valley and I have been working for North Halifax Partnership (NHP) for seven years. Seven years may not seem a lot to some of the veterans of NHP, but during this time I’ve gone from being an excitable 22-year-old not long out of university, to a much more understanding and well-rounded person and I truly have the team and the service to thank for that!
I feel really lucky to have a job in family support which is an area I am extremely passionate about. I worked front line with families for five years for NHP and have then moved into a senior post where I line manage Family Support and Parent Link Workers, however that doesn’t mean I still don’t get out and about supporting in the community covering parenting courses, supporting at events and occasionally taking on cases! I love the senior role as it is so varied; from building team plans and being part of the planning and development of services, to supporting staff to grow in their role and ensuring vulnerable families are fully supported.
Throughout my time at NHP, I have seen the service change for the better, for staff as well as service users which I’m sure has helped improve outcomes for many families. Family support can be accessed by any parent with a child between 0-18 (25 for SEN) through a simple referral form and we would be happy to speak to anyone who may want any more information.
