Parents who accessed both family and children/young person only sessions:

“Angling4EducationShort Breaks were more helpful than anything Social Services or the schools have offered us. They suggested star charts and how to set rules but then left us to it. None had spent time with us as a family or backed us up and helped us learn how to actually deal with him. This is the sort of thing we needed 3 years ago before we hit breaking point. It made a difference for me just to have someone behind me who understands us as a family. We all got counseling but not in an obvious way.”
