Our approach to supporting families is child-centred and based on a belief that effective early intervention prevents escalation of need in children, young people and their families.
Building attachment and attunement between parent and child underpins everything we do. We build resilience, health and well-being in families, empower parents and develop personal strengths and skills that prepare a child for school and for life.
Our offer is therefore based on progressive universalism – providing, on top of our accessible and wide-ranging universal offer, targeted help for those who need it most proportionate to their level of need.
We use a trauma-informed approach to providing services to enable the underlying need to determine the best approach and intervention for each child and their family.
