Help with family relationships

We offer relationship support for families, so that you have the right advice, during difficult times.

Contact one of our Family centres or One Point hubs for more information about the support we provide and the courses we run. 

Support for family relationships is needed for many different reasons. As well as advice for your situation, we provide advice around housing, money, benefits, health and how to keep your family safe.  

Relationships break down for many reasons - see below some of the circumstances where we can help.

  • you are a young parent and need support, including help with parenting skills
  • if you - or your child - is a young carer
  • if your family is going through a separation, or are living apart
  • if there is domestic abuse in your family

The help we give will depend on your situation. Examples of the support we give includes:

  • practical help to develop skills such as cleaning, cooking or housework
  • parenting classes
  • referring you to organisations that can help you
  • family meetings

Team Around the Family (TAF)

Every family has its ups and downs and sometimes you or your child/ren may need extra support. An assessment can help us to find out what support your family needs, as well as what is working well for you. We call this a single assessment. It allows us to share information with the services that can help you, meaning you only have to tell your story once. We have a  Icon for pdf Single Assessment and the Team Around the Family (TAF) - A guide for parents and carers (PDF, 313.2kb) .

See our Stronger Families Programme page for more information.
