How to contact this service

Description

Strengthening Families is a service that works intensively with disabled children or young people and their families where there are complex disabilities or additional needs. They can help if the support needed is not available from agencies involved with the child or young person (such as their school or the SEND Support Service).

Strengthening Families can work with your whole family offering advice and support on disability or additional needs, with direct work, virtual support, and groups. They will also address wider family issues that impact disabled children or young people and/or other family members. The team can coordinate multi-agency support for disabled children or young people and their families, including access to education, transitions, and home education.

The Strengthening Families Team deliver Group Stepping Stones (as part of the Triple P courses) specifically for parents/carers of children/young people who have a diagnosed developmental disability.

Children’s centres in Northamptonshire offer groups, parent drop-ins, family activities, and more for families with children aged from 0 to 19 years. They concentrate on supporting the whole family to ensure that children get the best start in life.
