At Little Miracles CEN we are very fortunate to have an excellent family support worker team who can provide emotional and practical help and advice to the families that we support that are having long or short-term difficulties in some way.
Our dedicated family support workers have the ability to communicate sensitively and effectively with both children and adults in your family unit in a very non-judgemental approach and is committed to supporting our members in difficult circumstances that maybe very new to them or as a returning event.
From general, emotional and SEND support through to advice on such areas as DLA, Benefits, Carers Allowance, Max Cards, Family Fund we are there to help. We can also provide basic Sensory support and advice alongside behavioural strategies and guidance.
Our Family Workers can engage with you in a number of ways. We utilise such things as private messages, email and phone calls to make helping you as easy as possible. We can also arrange 1-2-1 consultations at our offices or speak with you at one of our Sensory Sats sessions should you prefer.
Family Common Assessment Framework (FCAF)
In October 2015, Cambridgeshire County Council launched their ‘Think Family’ scheme. This scheme is to bring together a holistic, multi-agency approach to help support all family members in a time of difficulty. The Family Common Assessment Framework (FCAF) replaced the original Common Assessment Framework (CAF) in an attempt to support families as a whole, instead of just one family member.
We are very lucky to now have 2 volunteers trained in completing the FCAF form, Sian Turner-Gilbert and Richenda King. Both Sian and Richenda will be able to guide and support you when filling out the FCAF form.
To request a FCAF assessment through Little Miracles CEN, please fill out the contact form listed below or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
