Family Support and Community Development


FAMILY SUPPORT

Being a parent/caregiver is a difficult job and one that can be quite overwhelming at times. At BRILL FRC our very experienced family support workers provide advice, support and training to parents and guardians.

Families can come in confidence requesting assistance and a family support worker will put together a package of supports tailor made to meet the needs of your family. Families meet with a worker regularly to access guidance and support and work together to resolve the identified issues.

Parents who are supporting children with school refusal issues come together for mutual support on a weekly basis where advice and tips are provided to help parents to support their children to improve attendance.

A Dyslexia support group for children aged 10-12 years who have a diagnosis of Dyslexia and we are currently taking names of interested children and families. This will involve a six-week group programme where children are given the opportunity to understand Dyslexia, share their thoughts and feelings about how it affects them and identify their own learning differences through fun games and learning activities.

 

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

 

Community Development is a very important part of our work. Communities who thrive are those who communicate, cooperate, coordinate and collaborate!!! BRILL FRC works with local groups towards ensuring the community gets access to the very best services and groups. BRILL FRC also endeavours to work with local people and services in identifying unmet needs and service provision,and engaging with stakeholders towards remedying this.

 

Please feel free to call in for a chat and if our service is not what you require we will link you with the correct service for you and your family.
