Falkirk Family Support Community Interest Company’s mission is to offer free independent advice, guidance and support to Falkirk District’s most vulnerable bairns, young people and families including those supporting older relatives at the time when they identify support is needed. Falkirk Family Support has a mixture of volunteer and family support workers offering assistance depending on circumstances and needs.
Falkirk Family Support strongly believes in equality, diversity, being respectful and inclusive to all within our communities regardless of age, gender, ability, religion, ethnicity, background or sexual orientation.
Individuals and families can self-refer with the intension of support being provided at an early intervention stage when families want support rather than their situation deteriorating. Empowering individuals and families to find solutions to their own unique circumstances is a main aim in conjunction with reducing the need for the intervention of statutory services.
Advice, guidance and support is provided by a range of methods including service users being allocated a volunteer or family support worker for individual work, groupwork and contact through social media. Children, families and older people will be met in their homes and local communities at a place and time that is convenient to them.
Falkirk Family Support Community Interest Company’s aims include equitable access to support services for all including universal and community resources, improving the wellbeing of children, families and vulnerable adults, supporting parents to improve parenting, assistance offered directly in family homes & communities to reduce isolation, practical advice & guidance across a range of areas including relationships, parenting, issues affecting older people, domestic violence, health, sexual health, alcohol and substance misuse, offending, budgeting and finance, housing and homeless issues, improved education, training and employment. All involvement and practice with service users will be evidence based.
Falkirk Family Support Community Interest Company is not for profit and all fundraising & funding goes into providing the service. Every penny raised in Falkirk supports people in Falkirk District only
We work with partners to highlight the issues that children, families and vulnerable adults face due to inequality and disadvantage across Falkirk area and believe in mobilising communities to address these issues through volunteering.
