Family Action is delighted to be working closely with Cumbria County Council to deliver their new 0–19 Child and Family Support Service, having officially taken over provision on 1 January 2020.

Our support

We are currently in the process of mapping existing provision against the new service specifications. In the meantime, we expect existing services to continue as usual. If you have any specific questions, for instance around session times or availability, please see the new ‘What’s On‘ guides for each area below, or speak directly with your local centre manager.

Once the above mapping has been finalised, we will be offering a wide range of services, including but not limited to:

Advice:

  • Information and advice sessions
  • Online information, advice and support
  • Signposting to local services
  • Universal peer support group

Help:

  • Support and coaching on a 1:1 basis
  • Referral to a universal or specialist service
  • Participation in specialist group work

Further help:

  • Bespoke 1:1 support and coaching to help you address your and your family’s needs
  • Referral to a universal or specialist service
  • Follow-up coaching
