The purpose of the Family Intervention Project is to support children, young people and their families through the process of making positive and long term changes.
The project aims to identify and tackle the causes of poor behaviour and parenting which involves issues such as drug and alcohol misuse, poor health, domestic violence, unemployment or debt and work with families and professionals to reduce the impact of these.
This work is targeted at those whose offending behaviour is threatening their tenancies, putting their children at risk or is likely to lead to legal action.
The project also helps the more difficult families to address the causes of their behaviour, alongside supervision and/or enforcement. This provides an incentive to move towards positive change.
Families are usually referred to FIP via the Youth Offending service, Social Care, the Police, Schools, Housing providers or other agencies that work in partnership with FIP. Families are able to self refer.
For further information about FIP or if you already work with a family or know a family who you feel may fit our criteria please contact us.
