Our approach:

We hold a value base which seeks to ensure that all our involvements and interventions with families are ethical, collaborative and respond to aspects of disadvantage that affect families’ lives. We believe in a proportionate response to risk that is equally concerned with child and family need.

The team uses group processes, as well as co-working, to share knowledge and expertise, so that families are able to benefit from increased oversight and multiplicity of perspectives. All practitioners access case management and clinical supervision to ensure that our risk formulation and decision making is robust and challenged.


The team are qualified in a range of disciplines, and are highly skilled and experienced in working with complex child and family issues. This includes, but is not limited to; inter familial violence and abuse, neglect, difficulties in the parent/child relationship, and those who experience mental health problems or substance misuse.

The team have previously held roles to at least team manager, and as such we are able to hold and manage complex risk, tackle wider professional anxiety and make decisions that are in the best interests of children and families. This means that children and families receive the right service that is proportionate to risk and need.
