Advice & Support

 

As a Team we support children and families during Life events, whether they are welcome or unexpected, they each have an impact on family life. The Key Person knows your child well and can advise on developmental changes which affect family life such as the birth of a new baby, sleep, toileting or behavioural issues. Our Manager is a former Teacher, an Early Years Professional and an experienced SENDco. Our Business and Finance Manager is a source of support in all matters to do with funding and finance. Our Deputy is knowledgeable and experienced in delivering best practice to children who have English as an additional language. Sometimes expert knowledge would benefit a child and the family better and we advise referral or signposting to other agencies.
