They will walk alongside families in the target wards, working in partnership with existing statutory services, focusing on the A Better Start trilogy of child development outcomes. They will be supported and guided by professionals, taking SSBC activities into family homes and co-delivering group sessions and activities.
The successful provider organisation will recruit, employ, train and support Family Mentors to work with the SSBC Programme Team and alongside the existing workforce to contribute to the delivery our key outcomes. This is an exciting opportunity for the right organisation to play a major role in this nationally important ten year programme.
