Family Support Team

What is the Child and Family Support Service?

We aim to support children and their families at Coalway Junior Schools who may need or want some extra help.

You can make an appointment to visit us at school at a time convenient to you or we are happy to visit you at home if you would prefer.

We will offer information and advice and generally help to support parents, carers and children.

 

What can the service offer my family?  

Support to parents, carers, grandparents to help them cope with family life.

Individual work with children such as social skills, self-esteem, anger management, bereavement, parental separation, past and present family issues and individual worries.

Individual work with parents and carers, including help with writing or updating CV’s or providing support with parenting issues or separation difficulties.

Support can be offered for anything from a few days to a few months.
