Family Support

Community Links South West (logo)

Experienced, friendly practitioners and counsellors who work alongside families in flexible ways to deliver skilled interventions which are focused and time-limited.

Support for families can include help with how child development impacts on behaviour, as well as exploring strategies, tools and techniques to help families meet their challenges.

Often, we find that families experience very similar parenting issues, which we can help address with 1:1 support; alternatively, we can organise group sessions where families can explore specific challenges together. Realising that you are not the only one having difficulties can be very reassuring.

Our practitioners are also experienced in helping families through the maze of emotions experienced when parents realise that their child has additional needs. We can help them access specialist service, liaise with schools regarding any changes that may need to be made, and provide support in navigating the diagnosis process and statutory assessments.
