The Centre itself is a purpose built facility, with practical resources designed to provide a welcoming space to participate in activities. The Tranquility Room provides a quiet space for counselling and one-to-one support while our Treatment Room allows parents to have holistic therapies on site to aid relaxation and promote well-being. A large open plan living / eating / playing area looks out onto the garden and a fully equipped kitchen allows parents to take a hands-on role in healthy eating initiatives.
Support plans are put in place for families. These plans are made up of support programmes which are organised on an individual and group basis, with activities that provide support and guidance. This may include:
- Women’s group
- Dad’s group
- Intensive work with individual parents and children
- Parenting classes
These activities, combined with one to one sessions, work together to form an individual plan for the family, addressing key issues and working on skills to help overcome their own specific difficulties. These plans are evaluated at regular intervals, to ensure the needs of the family are being met and progress is being made.
Families can come to the Family Resource Centre by referral from an external agency or can refer themselves by simply calling or dropping into the centre.
