Family support workers go into the home to offer a support service to the disabled child and their parents or carers, in order to enhance the parents or carers skill and abilities, and thus improve family functioning.
Our main aims are:
-for the parent or carer to accept and understand their child’s disability
-to improve the relationship between parent and child
-to enable the parent or carer to meet their child’s basic needs
-for the parent or carer to become a more confident and relaxed parent
-for the parent or carer to take responsibility for their child’s disability
-to develop a good relationship between the child and parent, and the essential services, such as, school, hospital, clinic etc
-to ensure that there is a safe home environment for the child and their family.
