The post holder will be supporting families with multiple, complex needs and play a key role in delivering on the wider local Early Help and national Supporting Families programme targets. We are looking for two Family Coaches to work directly with families, taking on the lead professional role, completing whole family assessments, working alongside the family and other organisations to provide an holistic package of support via a family plan that is effective in improving outcomes for children and young people and reduces dependency on higher cost, specialist and statutory services.

Two of these posts will be focused on supporting families with children up to 5 years and the other post will be focused on supporting families with school aged children up to 17 years.
