Level 3 Comprehensive Support: Family Support Service

Level 3 Comprehensive Support: Family Support Service

We offer more focused support to families for up to 6 months if they are experiencing multiple or complex issues.

We work with the family and alongside other relevant agencies to support the family through a coordinated family plan with clear, agreed objectives.

Examples of the issues we may support families and children with include:

  • Excluded from school or having difficulties engaging with education
  • Currently or at risk of becoming NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training)
  • Affected by domestic abuse or parental conflict
  • Demonstrating risk-taking behaviour
      • Parent of a young person affected by poor mental health
      • Impacted by poor attachments or relationships within the family
  • Having difficulty parenting in a consistent way
  • Impacted by financial problems and debt
  • Having difficulty maintaining boundaries and expectations within the home
  • Vulnerable to exploitation
  • In a home environment impacting on the health and wellbeing of a child
  • Affected by health-related challenges that make family life more difficult

If you would like to request Level 3 support this should be requested using the report a concern form (MARF)


Note: The Family Support Service does not provide whole-family support (Level 3) when a child or young person is open to Statutory Children’s Services.
