FAWNS is a group work programme that has been developed for use with parents whose children are known to Children’s Services.  The group is designed to help parents to engage more thoroughly and effectively with the professionals assigned to work with them

Our Field-Specific Approach uses psychologists working alongside associates from different healthcare professions (for example occupational therapists, physiotherapists and psychotherapists) and other colleagues (drug and alcohol workers, musicians, artists) to focus on specific themes in each session.

The three main elements we look at are Wellbeing, Nurturing and Safeguarding which are all vital to meeting the needs of children.

  • Wellbeing – looks at both the health and welfare of the parents and how this affects children through developing awareness of their physical, emotional and psychological needs.
  • Nurturing – focuses on providing a caring, encouraging and supportive structure for people to model in their own behaviour towards others.
  • Safeguarding – explores ways of keeping adults and children safe in their own relationships, local surroundings and interactions with other people.

We deliver the programme in your local area in rooms provided by you, so your clients know where to come and you can monitor their attendance.  Groups are ran on a rolling basis with between 3-10 group members at any one time.
