Background

The Family Help Trust aims to confront the causes of family dysfunction and to provide high-risk families with the skills they need to improve their lives, and those of their children. The Trust was established in 1990 by a group of health and welfare professionals.

At the heart of our early intervention services are qualified, trained and experienced Social Workers who visit client families in their own homes.

Social Workers assist, advise and support families to address a wide range of difficulties, which may include substance abuse, anti-social behaviours, inadequate or abusive parenting, home management, child health, budgeting and self esteem.

Many of these families face crises with housing, food, finances and family relationships. One of the Social Worker's first priorities is to resolve these issues, so that the client can then focus on the wider issues that have been making life chaotic and unmanageable.
