family group conferencing
is offered to families wherever decisions need to be made about children, particularly when a situation cannot be resolved easily and when outside agencies have become involved.
- is voluntary and confidential;
- focuses on improving communication and understanding;
- places decision making in the hands of the family.
about our service
Our carefully selected team of family conference co-ordinators have a wealth of experience of working with families and young people, and a successful track record in achieving resolution.
At a family meeting our role is not to take sides or give advice, and we do not make judgements or take decisions. Our co-ordinators are independent and neutral facilitators who manage the process fairly, and help people to communicate and explore options.
