Parenting skills

Where children have been separated from their parents or carers it is important to ensure that support needs are identified prior to family reunification, to avoid reoccurrence of family breakdown in the future. Following a thorough assessment of their parenting ability, IFS will work directly with carers to monitor their progress during a programme designed to meet identified needs. In situations where lack of progress prevents re-unification from going ahead, IFS can provide additional input to support carers through the separation process in order to minimise the negative impact on the child.

Parent’s responses to their children and the quality of their parenting are influenced by their own relationship histories and significant events occurring over the life course.Legislation requires us to promote the upbringing of children by their families but an improvement in the quality of parenting is often vital if children’s safety within the family home is to be assured.IFS have the necessary skills and expertise to create and deliver individual packages of support, based on individual family circumstances, as an alternative to the ‘one size fits all’ approach which so often fails to get to the crux of the problem.
