All families need help and support at some point in their lives. Those involved in the Child Protection process often find that a lack of confidence, information and support means their views are not properly represented.
This is not just the case for the parents but extended family and friends can also make extremely positive contributions if properly enabled. Baker & Joy offers a range of Family Support services specifically designed for parents and families going through Child Protection procedures.
Family Group Conferences
Family Group Conferences provide a forum for the wider family and friends to have their input into the plans and decisions being made for a child at risk. We have skilled coordinators and chairs that help families get the most from the Family Group Conference process.
Parent & Family Advocacy
We provide advocacy services for parents involved with child protection services but find it difficult to engage with the statutory authorities. We provide a complete range of services for every stage from initial child protection enquiries to final outcome, including the complaints process.
