The Family Support Work (FSW) service provides local comprehensive family support, including parenting groups locally in children’s centres.
To refer a family into Family Support Work requires a professional to complete an ‘Early Intervention & Safeguarding Statutory Referral Form’. Completed forms are to be sent to the relevant locality early intervention panel. The relevant contact details for the panels can be found at the end of the form.
Some children centres across Calderdale also offer a family support drop in service for low level needs, advice and guidance which families can access directly. To access this type of service we would advise you phone the nearest team for further details as to what services they provide:
