Meet The Team

Who are we?

East Staffordshire Family Support Service delivers Tier 2 family support, funded by Staffordshire County Council, for families across the East Staffordshire.

Our vision is to make Early Help available at the earliest point, improving children and young people’s life chances and reducing demand for specialist/crisis services.

We have an executive board of voluntary Trustees who oversee our organisation. Our Trustees have extensive knowledge and experience, enabling us to deliver an effective level of governance.

Ian North, our Chief Executive is responsible for the management of the charity and reports to our Trustee Board.

Our Family Support Workers offer home-based whole family support to families with children aged between 0-19 years of age. Our support includes a range of evidence-based practice and tools including Parenting Programmes, Outcome Star, Early Help Assessments etc. to ensure that we respond effectively to the needs and the demands of local families and sustain positive change.

We hope you will be completely satisfied with the service you receive from us, but if you’re not, please take a look at our Complaints and Grievance Procedure and let us know.
