Helping to build and improve family support across the country

In a time of increasing responsibilities towards families, but less money with which to support them, Adfam aims to help local authorities develop and improve services with maximum effectiveness and professionalism.

 The purpose of Adfam’s consultancy service is to:

  • Identify local needs
  • Audit current provision of family support, including informal services
  • Propose appropriate responses to local needs and examine options for supporting families
  • Facilitate agreement on a realistic Action Plan to start the process of meeting families’ needs.

Consultancy work typically includes a review of national and local policy context and contact with a wide range of local stakeholders including service providers, current and potential service users and commissioners.

Adfam’s consultants will provide a local partnership with a detailed and practical report outlining local needs and opportunities for development; and the bespoke Action Plan needed to meet these needs and take these opportunities.

Our consultancy service is complemented by our training packages families and professionals.
