This involves gaining parental agreement to participate and for information sharing as well as explicitly explaining the offer and lead professional role to family.

The focus of all work will be on addressing the underlying issues within families rather than just the presenting concerns as a means of preventing re-referrals. You will develop a bespoke SMART Family Plan collaboratively with each family, together with the engagement of other key professionals, and this will then be the focus of your work. As a part of this you will actively engage and work with fathers and other extended family members.
