FAMILY WELLBEING TEAM (FWT)
The Family Wellbeing Team comprises of a team of Child Wellbeing Practitioners (CWPs). CWPs provide support to children, young people and their families where it is identified that a child or young person has mild to moderate symptoms of common difficulties such as anxiety, low mood, and behavioural problems. We work closely with other services to ensure that families receive the support that is right for them.
