At Family Works we aim to build strong families and help children and their families to learn, grow and thrive.
We believe that every family can be a great family. Families work well when they are free from violence, share healthy relationships, and have the resources they need to flourish. Our approach is to work alongside families, supporting them to build on their strengths.
Our approach means we:
recognise the unique strengths and potential in each person
believe that change happens when we all work together
acknowledge that each person’s own perspective takes priority
believe that positive change occurs through caring relationships
see challenges positively, as difficulties that can bring out the best in people
acknowledge that people feel more comfortable with familiarity and consistency
encourage people to succeed.
