The experienced and knowledgeable team are on hand to initially support families who meet the criteria of level 1 (universal) and level 2 (universal plus) of the ‘Level of Need’

This may include, but by no means exhausts areas of support in claiming benefits e.g DLA, accessing charity funding for equipment and activities that will benefit your child, positive behaviour support in the home, sleep support and signposting to appropriate respite activities.

We can make referrals to the Paediatric Learning Disability Service, who can support your family with all aspects of your child's behaviour and they also run courses to promote your understanding of why your child may behave in a certain way. For more information you can contact the Family Support team or look at the additional info at the bottom of the page. 

Our team also has links to the Children and Family Wellbeing Service and access to a Community Senior Family Support Worker (CSFSW.) If it felt a family needs may require level 3 (intensive support) or level 4 (specialist support) then a case consultation would be held with the CSFSW and an ‘Early Help Plan’ or referral into social care may be made on your behalf.

Please note that the family support team would seek your permission at all levels of support unless there is a safeguarding concern.
