At Corley Centre we employ Family Support Workers, Mrs M Phillips and Mrs Nagra ( Kandola)
The main role of the Family Support Worker is to support the well-being of young people and their families.
Mrs Phillips is available at school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and Mrs Nagra Monday and Tuesday on 01676 540218.
A key part of the Family Support Worker’s role is working closely with the young person, their family and other professionals. We know we support young people best when we work together, respecting and valuing each other’s expertise. We hope to be able to support young people by identifying the positive things in their lives, as well as the challenges they are facing and what we can do to overcome them.
Support for families
Here are some of the things the Family Support Worker might be able to support you with:
- Leisure activities
- Short breaks
- Local support groups
- Information about Autism
- Managing challenging behaviour
- Charity applications
- Health issues
- Attending meetings
- Signposting to other services
- Support for carers or young carers
The Family Support Worker may feel that the CAF (Common Assessment Framework) might be helpful for you and your family. The Family Support Worker may meet with you in school, but may also meet with you at home to talk about this process.
