Family Support Work

Swan Youth Project – Family Worker

Here for parents of young people aged 11 – 16. We can help with things like:

  • meeting with parents and children to identify problems and possible solutions
  • a friendly ear, because we all know how difficult being a parent can be
  • supporting behaviour and establishing roles and routines at home
  • helping to signpost families to the external support they may be entitled to
  • helping to make referrals to other agencies for different types of support
  • making home visits and meeting parents in the centre/school to provide on-going support
  • encouraging and supporting parents to form good relationships with the community/school
  • supporting transitions, particularly following COVID. Back to school will be a challenge that we can help with

Referrals can be made by the family or by other professionals. More information from:
