At Pitcheroak we work with a Family Support worker and an Education Welfare Support Officer. There are many areas of family life that we can help with such as advice on education, health, well-being, social development, behaviour management and relationships. The WCC have produced a handy leaflet that outlines all of the areas of support that they can offer.
Family Support can offer a programme called ‘Stepping Stones’ which is a course for parents and carers that focusses on giving advice and support on encouraging desirable behaviour, developing a positive relationship with your child and managing misbehaviour. Issues such as dealing with difficult behaviour, teaching new skills and communication are looked at and practical strategies are taught.
