SS John and Monica’s Family Support offer is provided by Father Hudson’s Care. This service supports children and families to overcome adversity and disadvantage they face, particularly where these are affecting a child’s emotional wellbeing, mental health and educational achievement. Our Family Support worker helps children and young people who are experiencing difficulties in school or at home.

The support: 
•    motivates parents to bring about change
•    strengthens relationships within families
•    promotes children’s wellbeing and resilience.

When children and young people are experiencing problems, these can present themselves through changes in behaviour, low educational attainment, absence or poor self-esteem. Working with the family, school and other agencies, Family Support workers identify the underlying causes and support families to address them.    

Through one-to-one and group work, the support offered by our Family Support workers empowers families to effect lasting change. Support work is child-centred and led by the needs of the individual family. It has a lifelong effect by improving attendance, behaviour, self-esteem and confidence, overcoming obstacles to learning, and raising aspirations.
