Description

Children’s Services work in broad partnerships and are committed to promoting and embedding whole family working as business as usual across early help and statutory services. Dorset Council is seeking a broad and diverse range of suitably qualified and experienced service providers to provide: • a service • an intervention and /or • an activity that can be termed a family support package and can contribute to the delivery of positive outcomes in line with those set out in the document Annex A: National Supporting Families Outcome Framework (publishing.service.gov.uk)

Family Support Packages are one optional element of the enhanced Whole Family support and resources that professionals can access on behalf of the families they are supporting. They can be defined as a variety of small-scale services, activities, or interventions which practitioners can utilise quickly and easily.

Examples of packages include, but are not limited to: Individual Mentoring / Support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (or questioning), and intersex young people and their families / Interactive Therapeutic Approaches / Mediation /Counselling / Relationship Support / Family Support Services / Introducing the idea of positive activities for families and/ or individuals and encouraging participation/ Household Management etc.

A Family Support Package will contribute to the Lead Professional’s family action or delivery plan – it will not be a stand-alone piece of work.
