CF Social Work previously owned a successful Family Support Service which, through its reputation, won contracts throughout London, East Anglia and the Home Counties.
In 2018, we reviewed the way in which we previously provided this service, with a particular focus on the outcomes for young people. While we were satisfied that we had promoted significant change for many families, the outcomes for children and young people on the edge of care and the edge of gangs were more difficult to evidence.
To address this our development team has created an entirely new and innovative way in which we believe we can help make a difference to this vulnerable group and assist LAs to achieve a signficantly improved ratio of positive outcomes.
The remodel is based on social work concepts using our pool of Independent Social Workers (ISWs) to support our Social Work Assistants (SWAs) who work at the coalface alongside young people.
