Key Workers Help Families

The family will get referred normally by the police or social services because they've attracted attention because of their drug or alcohol addiction and/or anti-social behaviour and criminality.

Rather than split up the family sometimes meaning children will go into local authority care, they're offered help via the Family Intervention Project.

It's not any easy option as the parents have to face their addictive habits and the consequences of their actions not only to the local community but also and more importantly their CHILDREN.
