Strengthening Families Programme

2019 Grant Application is now available

The first step in planning a Strengthening Families Programme in an area is to form a Steering Committee. Steering Committees comprise of a group of interested professionals that have come together and decided to plan, deliver and evaluate a Strengthening Families Programme in their area. This should be populated by a number of relevant agencies who currently work with families on a caring basis, ideally with reference to families with teenagers.  Steering Committee members should bring enthusiasm, commitment to good practice, solution focused skills, a child centered ethos & positivity to delivering the programme successfully. The steering committee will be the means to address any issues which arise throughout the programme.
