What we have achieved

How our support is delivered to families

90-95% of families have shown an improvment in their identified areas of need on the 'family star'; with similar improvments across wellbeing measures for both children and parents (RCADS and WEMBS), reductions in perceived levels of stress (PSS scale), as well as improvments in child and parent relationships. Additionally wellbeing for parents and children is captured via the CORE assessment and SDQ questionnaire, with all families showing reductions in difficulties.
