I have been working closely with Children and Families for well over twenty years. I have been actively involved with supporting families through a range of issues over the years and if I have not experienced a particular need before, I am very proactive at finding out what can be done to help!

  • Establishing routines

  • Positive Behaviour Strategies

  • Toilet training

  • Access to parenting support classes - including Triple P, Nurture Programme, Solihull Approach, Parenting Puzzle

  • Financial help,

  • Mental Health support,

  • Benefit advice,

  • Domestic abuse/ violence

  • Housing help,

  • Support to tackle Poverty

  • Food bank access,

  • Access to Local employment, Jobs and training availability.

  • Help with Alcohol and substance misuse.

  • Charity applications for emergency essentials for those in crisis.

  • Grief support

  • Access to counselling options for a variety of issues.
