The Strengthening Families Service provides targeted family support to families. They also provide advice and guidance to professionals about how to provide help to families, where the threshold for Children Social Care is not met, as early as possible.
The service offers support to children, young people and families who need some help to make things better. This may include support with parenting, routines and boundaries, maintain a safe standard of home conditions or keeping children safe. This is achieved through the development of a Team around the family (TAF) plan.
There is a Strengthening Families Team based in each of Sandwell’s six towns and are located within multi agency offices in each town.
