Family Support Adviser

Family Support Advisers - what do they do?

Family Support Advisers are there to support you and your child to get the best from school.

Family Support Advisers do this by:

  • Offering one to one support
  • Listening to parents and carers and giving confidential support and guidance
  • Organising regular drop in sessions to meet other parents and carers
  • Providing information about other relevant services in Bracknell Forest
  • Supporting parents and carers with their own learning opportunities
  • Providing access to parenting programmes
  • Putting parents and carers in touch with support groups
  • Supporting SEN pupils in mainstream classes

You might want to use a Family Support Adviser for issues like these...

  • 'My child's behaviour is getting out of hand'
  • 'I have lots of questions about being a parent'
  • 'I'm worried about the next parent's evening'
  • 'I just need someone I can talk to'
  • 'Since my partner left me things haven't been the same
  • 'I'm really worried about my daughter's schooling this year. Her self esteem is a problem'

What Family Support Advisers aim to achieve:

  • To build parents/carers confidence to deal with difficult parenting issues and behaviours.
  • To improve the achievements and attendance of children at school.
  • To strengthen relationships and communication between home, school & other services.

To get in touch with your Family Support Adviser ask at your child's school, or contact the Extended Services Team on 01344 353133.
