Family Action is delighted to have been awarded the Families Together Leeds contract in Leeds, which will be launched on 1 May 2019.

Our aims

Family Action’s Families Together Leeds service aims to support families with complex problems by working with them at the earliest possible stage to improve outcomes for the whole family, thereby reducing the need for more intensive interventions.

We are excited to be contributing towards Leeds One Vision:

‘of aiming to be the best city in the UK and the best city for children and young people to grow up in. Aiming to improve outcomes for all children and young people especially those from deprived backgrounds.’
(Leeds Children and Young People’s Plan 2018 – 2020)

Our service will champion the three objectives that are at the heart of the Leeds CYP Plan:

  1. safely and appropriately reduce the number of looked-after children
  2. reduce the number of young people not in education, employment and training
  3. improve achievement, attainment and attendance at school.

Our work

The Families Together Leeds team will work with families with children/young people where there is an identified support need. This will involve:

  1. one-to-one support
  2. targeted group work to complement the one-to-one work
  3. volunteer/befriender support.
