What is Futures for Families?
Futures for Families is a brand new service which will provide a rapid response to children and families in crisis who need support to prevent family breakdown.
At Middlesbrough Council we want to help families stay together, we want to keep homes safe and most of all enable children to have the future they desire.
The Department of Education (DfE) have invested into the project to help councils develop their work with families and safely reduce the number of children entering care, helping to keep young people safe and with their family and community.
Futures for Families is based on North Yorkshire County Council’s ‘No Wrong Door’ model which has, and continues to, successfully support children and families to achieve positive outcomes.
